    Default Exploit.Java.Gimsh.b

    Good morning,I wanted to post here to see if anyone else has been hit with this exploit:
    When this first showed up on my computer, over 2 weeks ago, there was no info that I could find. The only thing that turned up at that time was "Exploit.Java.Gimsh.a".
    I deleted it in the ZA user interface. The following week, after the AV scan, 3 more of these "Exploit.Java.Gimsh.b" show up. Not much information about it.
    ZoneAlarm says it's a virus, and it could not repair it.
    They have
    been quarantined. Does anyone know what these might be?Would it help at all to clean out the Java cache folders?
    I have WXP Home, and I use ZA Anti-Virus/Firewall vs:
    ZoneAlarm Anti-virus version:7.0.462.000
    TrueVector version:7.0.462.000
    Driver version:7.0.462.000
    Anti-virus engine version:3
    Anti-virus SDK version:
    Anti-virus signature DAT file version:930968711

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Software Version:
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Antivirus

    Thanks for replying chiaz.
    I don't have anything that resembles Java plugin in control panel. The only thing there is Java. I open it and there is no &quot;cache&quot; button. The only thing close is &quot;delete temporary files&quot;.
    Am I missing something?
    I thought I had the latest version of Java?

    For Java 1.5, do this instead. Start-&gt;Control Panel-&gt;Java-&gt;Settings-&gt;Delete Files and click OK and OK. Your Java Runtime Environment is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system. Please follow these steps to remove older version Java components and update.

    Updating Java: <UL><LI>Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6u3. <LI>Scroll down to where it says "Java Runtime Enviroinment (JRE) 6u3, The Java SE Runtime Environment (JRE) allows end-users to run Java applications". <LI>Click the "Download" button to the right. <LI>Check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement". <LI>The page will refresh. <LI>Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation, Multi-language and save it to your desktop (13.16 MB). <LI>Close any programs you may have running - especially any web browsers. <LI>Go to Start &gt; Control Panel double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java. <LI>Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name. <LI>Click the Remove or Change/Remove button. <LI>Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java versions. <LI>Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed. <LI>Then from your desktop double-click on jre-6u3-windows-i586-p.exe to install the newest version.</LI>[/list]

    Let me know how it goes. :8}
