Anonymous Reader writes "Over the last few months we have witnessed a notable increase in exploits of security problems in commonly-used programs that could allow remote attacks by malicious attackers. This situation is due to the new malware dynamic, in which the main objective is financial gain. Internet criminals are concentrating their efforts on discovering and exploiting security problems that allow them to harvest as much confidential user data as possible. This data is then used for online fraud and identity theft."
