Mac OS X - Security

The default installation has Mac OS X Mountain Lion with Gatekeeper set to only allow apps from trusted developers and App Store apps. It also does not come preinstalled with Java or Flash.

There is a recent outburst of different Trojans and other malware hitting the Mac platform. In the Mac's default setup is it possible to get an infection based on what is in the wild today? Or is the only Trojans using exploits in Java/Flash?
