Java and Virus's - What gives?
In the past I have installed Java 2, RESE 1.4.2_04 and experienced several problems with Trojans entering my system. NIS didnít catch them entering but NAV 2003 caught them after running a scan (this happened on several occasions).
I deleted java in order to prevent the trojans from infecting my system in future.
Once I deleted java I had no problems, no more infections. Ran several Windows updates. Everything was fine. Regular NAV scans revealed no further infections.
I decided to install Java (same pgm) again several days ago. I ran a NAV scan 5 days after installation and found 5 trojans (byte verify being one).
What is it with this Java program? It seems to be a virus magnet. Is there anyway to keep the program and keep the virusís out?
