Hi Mina,

a) if you sent the file in already, imho there's no response (or post) needed
b) how did you determine exactly that this would be a false positive ? ???

this is a normal report. The java packages do contain the ClassLoaders...

you were not infected..
your Browser (IE?) just downloaded a malicious java-package into your java-Cache

this is a first because you were baaaad!!  (I mean on a bad page) ;D ;D ;)

empty java-cache and secure your IE better..

Correct,when you visit some "bad" page,nasty files download to browser cache and get executed. Usually Resident Shield blocks such activity.

Infected is not a right word here, I'd say.

There are 'infected' files stored on your disk is much more appropriate. To be infected usually means that the virus is active, which is not the case here (far from that actually)
