Mac Flashback Exploiting Unpatched Java Vulnerability

Mac users should be careful with possible phishing scam exploiting an unpatched Java vulnerability.

Here is a brief introduction from the F-Secure publication:

Oracle released an update that patched this vulnerability back in February… for Windows.

But — Apple hasn’t released the update for OS X (yet).
It appears that the Flashback gang is keeping up with the latest in exploit kit development. Last week, Brian Krebs reported that the CVE-2012-0507 exploit has been incorporated into the latest version of the Blackhole exploit kit. And that’s not all. Though it is unconfirmed, there are rumors of yet another available exploit for an "as-yet unpatched critical flaw in Java" on sale.
