Avast does not need to detect it, because you update your OS and Browser regulary or do not use Javascript at all, do you? :)

I do not know if Avast detecs it or not, but i think it is difficult to identify exploite and they are harmless, if you make updates regulary.

hi,
browse through the dozens of pages here:
http://www.virusbtn.com/resources/vgrep/vgrep.cgi?terms=JS.Exception.Exploit&product=11

avast/AlWIL detects some, not all versions of it

 ;)

I installed IE6SP1 with some patchs, Are they enough? ???
Does disabling JS affect web surfing?  ???
