List of Currently Exploited Sun Java Vulnerabilities

The following is a list of Sun Java runtime vulnerabilites that have reliable exploits and are commonly found in today’s crimeware packs. This list is current for all publicly available crimeware packs as of 07 April 2011.

For organizations that cannot simply update all Sun Java runtime instances to the latest fully patched version available, this list can be used as a starting point to ensure that you have appropriate blocks configured in your IPS systems. If any of these aren’t enabled by default from your IPS vendor, you should consider adding those to your block/notify list.

    I can tell you, based on the CVE numbers, the TippingPoint IDS covers only 2 of those 10 vulnerabilities. 20% coverage is not so great…
