Submission + - UAE Government 'Used Java Flaw To Load Spyware' (techweekeurope.co.uk)

judgecorp writes: "Rights groups say the United Arab Emirates government used the latest Java zero day flaw in an attempt to load spyware onto an activist's computer. Bahrain Watch reports dissecting an email sent to an activist, which promised a video involving Dubai's chief of policy, but which actually contained a Java applet that exploited the unpatched flaw, to install a remote administration toolkit apparently based on SpyNet."
