    This is not a javascript exploit.

    This is a JAVA exploit.
    Big difference.
    This can be a high risk - even Vundo started out with being a JAVA exploit/troyan and still is.


    Usually the best advice is clean the JAVA file cache.
    The next step if that fails is uninstall the JAVA - and clean all temp files.
    Then do a complete scan with the antivirus.

    And javascript exploits can do damage and infect a computer. And download troyans or spyware.

    No problem.
    Antivirus writers lingese:
    js (plus others conatations) = javascript
    java (plus others conotations) = java

    BTW check out iframe exploits, swf exploits, cross site exploits, animated gif/jpg exploits, banner exploits and some of the web site exploits. These all use javascripts exploits.
    Probably missed a few others, coming from the top of my head.
    OK I will admit the web site exploits will include other types of exploits such as html/php/cgi/activeX/embedded mime/etc, but the picture of exploits is a lot larger than it used to be.
