    Anyone had this? just had a java update and NOD snagged "Java/Exploit.CVE-2012-0507.CU trojan" in "AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\6.0\48\45fd0c30-3146f45d"

    i had a look on the java site, they say anything in there isn't to do w/ their update. this means to me that yet again NOD has let something slip through and reside on my machine, from fk knows when. if true, i'm especially annoyed as i just had a call yester about two fraud attempts to use my credit card, and it leaves to to wonder if this is related?

    any comments? i made comments last time about this so-called "100% catching stuff in the wild" claim from ESET, is this another example of something that's been missed?

    Try to clear your Java Cache.

    I lost the Windows XP Pro "Control Panel" Sun Java Icon after the Sun Java 7 Update 9 installation.. NOD32 did not indicate any Malware.

    That was noted by many. Apparently, that happened only on XP systems. I confirmed this by checking an XP system and Win 7 systems at a business. Downloading and reinstalling Java brought back the control panel. I have no idea why it was removed, but the update does install in the same folder, so maybe the control panel gets removed with the update and only a full reinstallation restores everything.
