Java Exploit problems RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I have XP Professional w/ SP3, am all updated, have IE8 and use Microsoft Security Essentials (discovered I had a problem when my virus definitions wouldnt update), use Windows Firewall, and run MalwareBytes once a week. I went to Windows Live Onecare scanner and it found the following 11 items - 4 severe issues.        Exploit:Java/CVE-2008-5353.CG,              Exploit:Java/CVE-2008-5353.EQ,             Exploit:Java/CVE-2009-3867.CA,              Exploit:Java/CVE-2009-3867.EQ,

    ANY IDEAS WHAT I SHOULD DO NEXT AS LIVE SCANNER SAID IT CAN'T BE CLEANED

  • I did not know you could have windows live one care and microsoft essentials loaded at the same time. Anyway..here's what I did. Uninstall Live One Care (It finishes soon anyway). Install the microsoft essentials again so it can update. Do a FULL system scan. The Exploit files are regarded as severe and unless you change your Windows Essentials settings menu they will be automatically removed.

     

    Hope this helps
