Exploit.VBS.Phel.bl What's This??
ZAISS found this in my Temporary Internet Files folder today, but when I went there to have a look-see, the folder contained no files. Took awhile (5-6 seconds) to open the folder, I might add. ZASS quarantined the file, but a search of my computer for "exploit*.* turned up nothing.
Searched for that filename on the internet, found nothing. Is this a false report, or is there something I need to worry about??
Operating System:Windows XP Pro

Risk AssessmentCorporate User<a target="_blank">Low</a>Home User<a target="_blank">Low</a>Overview
This is a trojan detection. Unlike viruses, trojans do not self-replicate. They are spread manually, often under the premise that they are beneficial or wanted. The most common installation methods involve system or security exploitation, and unsuspecting users manually executing unknown programs. Distribution channels include email, malicious or hacked web pages, Internet Relay Chat (IRC), peer-to-peer networks, etc.Characteristics
