Java Exploit CVE-2012-0507 keeps appearing in scan results!

After updating Java from the Oracle website the next time I did a full scan in MS SE it threw up this potential threat and I removed it. A week later a full scan threw it up again. Is my copy of Java corrupt?

I probably wouldn't hurt to remove it & reinstall it. More information here:

Encyclopedia entry: Exploit:Java/CVE-2012-0507.A - Learn more about malware - Microsoft Malware Protection Center

You could also have some older versions of Java on your system that are vulnerable to infection. Make sure you are running the latest version and be sure to remove all older versions.

The latest version is Ver 7 update 5.

Thanks - I have reloaded Jave and will do a scan to see if Java Exploit is on board or not.
