As almost all of our regular readers are aware, browser exploits are lately delivered heavily obfuscated. The main reason for this is, of course, to evade AV or IDS detection.

As the Anti Virus industry moved a step forward and improved detection of obfuscated exploits, the attackers started a trend of creating obfuscated exploits on the fly...detection of such exploits still seems to be only in the early phases. Only 5 out of 32 AV programs represented on VirusTotal were able to detect this file as malicious (and of those 5 some share scanning engines so the number is even lower!)...
