Don't know for sure because Avast uses different names.

Java.ByteVerify.exploit
avast4 missed a virus
Edit: forgot to mention that this trojan was added  to the virus db after the 'avast4 missed a virus' thread ( VPS 0311-6, 16.12.2003)  ;)

Yep, people should make sure they have MS Virtual Machine 3810 or higher installed.  It's another Microsoft exploit.

Does that come with IE6 because I don't have the option on IE5.5?

Okay, got it installed! ;D  Thanks!

I guess this is a result of the lawsuit between Sun and MS.  I'm glad the Sun Java plugin is available for IE.
