    I was playing around with Avast! antivirus protection and it found this:

    JS:ByteVerify-Dummy [Trj]
    JS:Classloader-6

    I did a full scan with Nod32 and came up clean.
    I did a full Trend Micro House call scan and came up clean.
    Did a full TDS-3 scan came up clean.
    Did a Ewindo scan came up clean.

    I did a full Panda online scan and found 7 of theses:

    Virus:Exploit/ByteVerify

    The infected files were found in the "Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\javapi\v1.0\jar\" directory.

    What is this? Im a newb so any help would be greatly apprieciated.

    BTW- Panda cleaned the virus from my machine.

    Thanks,

    Vince

    After panda cleaned your computer did you run the panda scan again to make sure it didn't pick it up again? If so you are probably ok. It is strange though some of the other apps. didn't pick it up also. But stranger things have happened.

    there is some confusion. sometimes legitimate files create false alarms. one fine day my DrWeb woke me up to show me that my .CPP sourcecode was infected with a trojan. imagine a textfile being infected! yes but it is possible though as some viruses manipulate the source codes but i wrote and checked that file so i know its a false alarm. anyway my point is that you have to make sure that those files are actually infected or not. you can try DrWeb and Kaspersky file upload scan for those files. if all those bigshots misses it then its a ZOO virus probably.

    Does anyone know if what Avast and Panda detected was a virus or something else? I read on the McAfee site that detection doesn't necessarily mean your infected.

    Thanks,

    Scanned again with Panda 100% clean. Still a bit concerned about all the other programs I mentioned not picking up what Avast and Panda picked up.
