SabPub spreads via an exploit in Java, like Flashback. However, Alex Gostev, chief security expert of Kaspersky Lab, told Mashable that the similarities end there.

"The Flashback and the SabPub Trojans are totally different," Gostev said. "SabPub is classic backdoor Trojan, so it opens full access to a victim’s system for attackers. Flashback and its known variants is downloader and clickjacking bot, which means it conducts click fraud scam by hijacking people’s search engine results inside their web browsers."
