November version of KaiXin has involve by removing support of Oracle Java CVE-2012-0507 and CVE-2012-0754 vulnerabilities, and adding support of Oracle Java CVE-2012-1723 (fixed in Jun 2012 CPU), of Oracle Java CVE-2012-4681 (fixed in End August Oracle Security Alert) and of Oracle Java CVE-2012-5076 (fixed in October 2012 CPU).

Here under a VirusTotal analysis of all involved files:

The following diagram describe you the way November version of KaiXin EK is working.

Cool Exploit Kit Remove Support of Java CVE-2012-1723

Beginning November, @Kafeine discovered that Cool EK (Exploit Kit) had integrate an exploit for a Oracle Java vulnerability fixed in 7U9. The new exploit was exploiting CVE-2012-5076 vulnerability through the “new.jar” file.

November version of Cool EK was supporting :

The following diagram describe you the way November version of Cool EK was working.

Since few days, Cool EK has involve by removing support of Oracle Java CVE-2012-1723 vulnerability, replacing “new.jar” file with a “java.php” streamed file. The new “java.php” is only catched by 3/44 anti-viruses on VirusTotal. November version, aka “new.jar” was catched by 28/46 anti-viruses on VirusTotal.

In November version “file.jar” requested “myfile.dll” through “/r/f.php?k=1&e=0&f=0” request and “new.jar” requested the same DLL file through “/r/f.php?k=2&e=0&f=0” request. All these requests have been replaced, in the December version, with a unique request to “/r/f.php?k=1“.

The following diagram describe you the way December version of Cool EK is working.
