Which totally explains why IIS gets broken far more often than Apache. Or why all those Windows servers get broken more than the far more prevalent unix ones.

Don't get upset because people aren't using what you think they should.

Really?  And your proof of this is what?  Any system can get hacked if not properly managed.  A most real world hacks that have been successful have been using older exploits.

It worked (for a while) - sometimes the old tried 'n true gets the ball rolling. Malware authors are like any other developers.

So with this Java exploit business... DATS EASY BRO DISABLE JAVA!

Yet we have two clients who use java applets for business activity.

What do I tell them? Sucks to be them?

Everybody likes these groups of people when they are attacking the people they don't like but, boy oh boy, when it's them getting hit, they want the hackers executed. This is why people like and then hate Anonymous.

The idea that a shadowy group of hackers is out there, playing with the big boys, is oddly reassuring to me. No matter which way it's falling.

These aren't Anonymous guys. These are hackers working for the Chinese government, which is also Chinese industry. They're a different kind of hacker. This is corporate and political espionage.

But when they failed to fix this exact vulnerability a few months ago, when can I expect to do the same dance again? Update 13?

So? Right now, Linux is more secure than Windows. The reason is irrelevant. If people started switching now, they'd have a good 5, maybe 10 years, before malware authors caught up. In the meantime, Microsoft would be busy rewriting their stuff to save as many customers as they could. By the time you switched back (if you switched back), Windows would be both more secure and more compatible with Linux, and we'd finally be rid of the software monoculture that make us sitting ducks for malware.

You know, this actually explains a lot of  Microsoft's business strategy.  Releasing Windows 8 is a security move!  Once everyone switches to Linux or Macs, no hackers will bother with Windows anymore!

They'll finally be secure!

I spent much of last night trying to hunt down some malware (turns out the one thing may have been a false positive, hopefully), so kick, etc...

Anyway, if it turns out 'they' got into my documents, I hope they enjoy the dozens of Visual Basic introductory homework assignments and the erotic fiction I'm working on. Oh and the inventory list of NES games. And the pictures of cats.

But since they didn't know to say that, the answer defaults to, "You should find another consultant who knows the answer to this conundrum."

All the attacks are carefully tuned to the specifics of the victims. For instance, the initial documents are customized to make them more appealing and every single module is specifically compiled for the victim with a unique victim ID inside.
