today i did a full scan and it found Exploit-CVE2012-1723
It is deleted by mcafee.
I did a scan with super anti spyware and hitman pro but they come out clean.
Is the virus gone now or should i do something else?
I always update java.
But now i have deleted java it seems to be safer.
It's your choice to keep Java or not, just make sure you only have one version installed and it's the latest version. Normally it will update automatically.
However, that item should now be in your quarantined items folder.
Click Navigation (top right)
Scroll down and click Quarantined and Trusted Items.
It should show in one of those sections when you can then delete it.Message was edited by: Ex_Brit on 26/08/12 3:45:37 EDT PM
i had one version installed and the latest version.
The item is in the quarantined folder.
So i can delete the item now?
And is everything gone now and it is safe again?
I also did a scan with mbam and this comes out clean.
Yes delete it. Exploits aren't always dangerous but the software removes them just in case. I would say you're fine now. ;-)Message was edited by: Ex_Brit on 26/08/12 8:03:37 EDT PM
You can delete the quarantined item. As for "is everything gone now", well, maybe. That exploit is a favourite of people using the BlackHole Exploit Kit, so there's always the risk that any infection comes with other malware attached.
See what I wrote here.
If in doubt run a scan with another tool, such as Microsoft's Safety Scanner.
Probably okay then, but watch for any signs of strange behaviour on your system.
(And I realise that that statement is asking for trouble after the events of the past week).
