Default Java is the largest malware target according to Microsoft

From http://h-online.com/-1387528

In a posting on the Microsoft Security Blog, Tim Rains, a director of Microsoft's Trustworthy Computing Group, has written of the huge number of Java exploits being found in the wild. In the second half of 2010 and first half of 2011, between a half and a third of all exploits observed by Microsoft's Malicious Software Removal Tool attacked vulnerabilities in Java – in the Runtime Environment, the Virtual Machine or the Java SE in the Java Development Kit. Rains based his comments on the latest Microsoft Security Intelligence Report.
