EXPLOIT-KIT -- Snort has alerted on traffic that is typical of known exploit kits. Exploit kits are pre-packaged sets of code and malware geared toward finding and taking advantage of common browser vulnerabilities. They are Javascript code that provides an entry point to a system to initiate the next state. Snort's rules look for known exploit kit nomenclature, information sent back exposing sensitive infrastructure, attempts to reach a certain file, etc. Rules try to identify the exact kit being used based on actor-group patterns, such as favored target website, malware types, and code similarities.

CVE-2012-4681
Multiple vulnerabilities in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) component in Oracle Java SE 7 Update 6 and earlier allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted applet that bypasses SecurityManager restrictions by (1) using com.sun.beans.finder.ClassFinder.findClass and leveraging an exception with the forName method to access restricted classes from arbitrary packages such as sun.awt.SunToolkit, then (2) using "reflection with a trusted immediate caller" to leverage the getField method to access and modify private fields, as exploited in the wild in August 2012 using Gondzz.class and Gondvv.class.

CVE-2013-2423
Unspecified vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) component in Oracle Java SE 7 Update 17 and earlier, and OpenJDK 7, allows remote attackers to affect integrity via unknown vectors related to HotSpot. NOTE: the previous information is from the April 2013 CPU. Oracle has not commented on claims from the original researcher that this vulnerability allows remote attackers to bypass permission checks by the MethodHandles method and modify arbitrary public final fields using reflection and type confusion, as demonstrated using integer and double fields to disable the security manager.
