Hi M Community - I put an old desktop I had not used for some time thru a complete scrub. Clean, cept 2 issues which I cannot explain:
1xJava Exploit (2010-0840): Unexpected. Unit had been Java updated regularly. Updated to Version 5.20 (vulnerability patched) back in April 2010. Can java exploits download onto a computer with updated/patched system? Is a java exploit on a patched system harmless?
Hitmanpro found inactive remnants of Zeroaccess (registry keys). I once removed a Ukash infection using system restore + AV/MBAM but that was the only active infection I previously found on this computer - nothing else ever found. Why were remnants found of an infection that was never found/removed? HMP responded saying these remnants may have been part of the Ukash but still doesnt explain the remnants... or could the remnants have survived the restore?
All input/suggestions welcome...
