been using avg since 2000, I did an update today and all seemed ok!!,I thought I will try housecall just to make sure, As you do.
Would you believe it I have been penetrated by -JAVA BYTEVER.A, Housecall has sorted it out though!, eh hopefully??

I've just done a search of Trend's virus data base for Java Bytever.A

No result, strange init? Any chance of it being a false indication?

  deke 20:21 18 May 2004

I did a google search ,I think it's spyware rather than anything really sinister!

There is a Trojan known as:-

Trojan.ByteVerify on Symantec

Exploit_ByteVerify on McAfee

Exploit.Java.Byteverify on Kaspersky


Java/ByteVerify on Grisoft (AVG)

So if it's on AVG database why no indication?

I think Trend could be over enthusiastic.

i run Trend occasionally as a "back -up". I hav Norton antivirus on here which "does its own thing" far so good with no infections...hummm

Very Scary it's like waiting on the results of a biopsy..... well almost
I think that i am clear, thanks to those clever people at trend micro and avg
