Computer Security & Viruses/kaspersky malware description


QUESTION: Installed Kaspersky this am and ran full scan.  It tells me HEUR:Exploit.Java.CVE-2013-1493a is detected.  Tells me it cannot be disinfected and offers two methods to deal with it.  1) Delete archive or 2) Ignore (recommended).. which makes no sense? so I ask you - the expert - do I do as it recommends, or delete the archive file?  thanking you in advance.

ANSWER: Hi jac,

QUESTION: I was truly hoping for an A or B solution and I do thank you for leading me to a forum that wouldn't want me for a member as anything more than an A or B solution is beyond me... so I deleted the archive and now Kapersky smiles on my computer.  Hope I didn't delete something important.  I should have been born in 1910.  Thank you very much for being an invisible knight there to offer assistance.

I could have given you the solution in my own words, but since Kapersky is the best expert on its own product, it was the best I could do.

Glad it resolved the issue. If you need further assistance, just let me know.

Keep in mind, when it comes to deciphering issues related to software (especially security), it's often good to try the developers or product forums, at least at first.


I gave the simple right answer was given in a timely manner and the reward is steeds and castles and typewriters and an 8 for clarity? In my opinion, this is not fair.
