Won't somebody think of the ...?

From an article on PDF vulnerabilities (which, not unlike the recent article on Macintosh wireless vulnerabilities, charmingly reassures us that we should be very, very, very afraid, without being entirely clear about, say, how we can resolve the security problem, whether other configurations than the one discussed (Windows with Adobe Reader and Internet Explorer, as near as I can tell) are vulnerable, &c.), we have the following quote:
Active exploitation techniques such as buffer overflows are becoming more and more difficult to find and exploit .... The future of exploitation lies in Web technologies.
Forget about the future of our country, and our children's futures. These are old hobbyhorses. The new worry is: Whither exploitation?
