    whoa! this is weird!! I just got a Virus on my computer. anyone ever gotten the JS.Exception.Exploit virus before? that's the name of the virus that I just got. I hope it doesn't do too much damage. Norton Anti-Virus Quarantined it. So is it safe now?

    norton anti virus is crap imho

    also if its quarantined i think you will find the file affected is still there, just renamed so it wont run, rather than the virus actually being removed from it

    you might need to update norton to the newest virus sugnatures (use the auto update feature) to actually fix it properly

    or just delete the affected file

    since it's in the Temporary Internet Files folder in the WINDOWS folder, you think if I do Disk Cleanup (which deletes Temporary Internet Files) it will delete the virus?

    try it and do the virus scan again?, it should tell you then its clear, unless it doesn't rescan i's quarantineed files of course (check if your scanning just executables and documents, or all files)

    Judging by Symantec's description, nothing.

    How does someone get it from a site they visit? Could they mean from a file they downloaded from that site? or does just visiting the site all it take?

    I remember getting 1 virus. I was half-conscious and checking some email. I went through and deleted most of the spam. I seen one that sent me an attachment with a ".pif" extension. Any Windows 3.1 user knows what a .pif file is, Win3.1 users learn to create them. .. Well NEway, I was thinking "Neato, no harm in opening a PICTURE file" As soon as I clicked open I relized . . "What a damn minute, .pif is an executable!!" [​IMG]

    Sure enough it was some worm that I quickly forgot about because I just reformatted and reinstalled. [​IMG]

    JS.Exception.Exploit isn't a virus proper, but a piece of Javascript that exploits some weakness in older unpatched Internet Explorers. According to the description, it is mostly used to change your browser homepage behind your back and similar purposes.

    use the free online virus scanner at trendmicro.com, or use AntiVir at hbedv.com, it's free.

    technically the name is a general term given to any java script that the antivirus will pick up on that it thinks is harmfull. I mean java exploits can cause tons of problems on a computer i mean if somebody knew what they were doing really i guess they could use java to run stuff on a persons computer. blah blah blah yada yada yada
