Item in Quarantine

Jump to solution

Internet Security quarantined a file as threat exploit-FHX E32114129522 item 51c2F692-67674D6F with status as Detected. I do not see unusual network firewire activity, and everything seems to be functioning okay (browser speed ok, programs ok, etc). Can I just highlight that file in quarantine and hit the delete button, and then assume that everything's okay? Here's a screen shot of the Quarantine page with info. Thanks for your assistance!

Yes you can do just that.  As it mentions Java, make sure your Java is up to date and that there are no old Java enginhes hangingb around in your programme list.

I am very appreciative for your guidance. Thank you. I do have latest java installed but I see there are older ones that previous updates didn't remove. I'll take care of that now.

Those old ones could have been the catalyst that creted that item in Quarantine.

I have my Java console settings done so it notifies me when an update is available.

If you update when that notifies you it should stop old versions from appearing.
