Note Sophos has reported having seen on the thread of a BH EK :

It's maybe not obvious to all readers but in fact BH EK is changing everyday to play his part in the "Poke A Mole" game with Antivirus
Picture S
 (many other moving factors, payload packing (to avoid getting caught on 4), reverse proxies and domains rotation (to avoid blacklisting and fail on 2), JS obfuscation (at many stage of the attack, on chained redirection (step 2) and in the Blackhole (step 3) )

The Java Payload (stage 3 on Picture S) is moving on a daily basis . Here is what i found on a BH EK between June 21 and July 12 :

Note that when they appear it's often a 1 or 2/42 on Virustotal meaning that stage 3 of the Attack will likely work if your software (browser plugins) are not up to date.
