A new browser exploit kit called “Private Exploit Pack” has been available since May on hacker forums.

Private Exploit Pack (PEK) has undergone testing on Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows Vista and even Windows 8, said a security researcher named Kafeine of Malware Don’t Need Coffee.

As far as the browsers go, Opera and Internet Explorer appear the most vulnerable, Kafeine said. Infection rates on Chrome are low since “Google requires users to allow plugins to run.”

Newer versions of Firefox are also resistant to the exploit kit, Kafeine said.

Currently, PEK contains three Java exploits, one Internet Explorer exploit, one PDF exploit and one Microsoft Data Access Components exploit.

The author accepts payment via Perfect Money, LTC, BTC and WMZ, but he warns potential customers not to pay with stolen money.

The exploit pack costs $50 per day with unlimited traffic. Those who want to rent Private Exploit Pack for a month have to pay $1,100, but they benefit from discounts.
