    If the .jar file came from the Java cache folder, it may be an old exploit that has been made ineffective with the latest Java patches. Better safe than sorry when it comes to malware, though.

    The file was in the path C:\Users\(My name)\AppData\Local\Temp\Low\

    Does that help?

    i think this is what kl call it a generic detection o_O

    its not by signature!! ، its by behavior by the proactive defence

    Proactive defense detections are behavior based - only detects behavior of the file while its running, not static detection (by just scanning).

    Heuristic detections start with Heur, eg...
    Heur.Trojan.Generic
    Heur.Backdoor.Generic
    Heur.Invader
    Heur.AntiA
    Heur.Downloader
    Heur.KillFiles
    Heur.StartPage
    Heur.Worm.Generic
    Heur.Virus.Generic
    Heur.Infector
    Heur.Script... (currently undergoing testing and tweaking)

    Generic detections end in ".gen"
    Listed in Kaspersky's Virus Watch

    Back to the topic now...
