ASN.1 BER is used in _many_ places, up to and including ISDN messages :)
Certs, etc...

David Meltzer had this fine snort signature for it:

alert tcp any any -> any any (msg:"Possible ASN.1 Exploit Attempt")

Now if someone wanted extra points. They would write a sw
scanner that would look through binaries for calls to the 
affected bits of built-in malware so signatures could start
to be built. Cause the exploit guys are sure to have 
such a scanner already :).
