Gentlemen prefer blondes

But hackers prefer Firefox and Opera:
Security researchers at Purewire have leveraged vulnerabilities in malware infrastructure to track the criminals behind it. In a three-month long project, they used security flaws in exploit kits to get operators to expose themselves (Obnoxious interstitial ad between link and content) when they access the kits' admin control panels. Data collected shows that 50% of those tracked use Firefox, while 25% use Opera.
It's actually not a bad idea to use what the pros use. Actually, security guru Rich Mogul has a good article on this, too.

Hmmm, I wonder if they read Borepatch?
