Exploit:Java/CVE-2008-5353.B;Trojan:Java/Selace.A and B

Help! I ran the Windows Safety Scanner. It detected four issues, but apparently, the scanner cannot clean three:

Exploit:Java/CVE-2008-5353.B
Trojan:Java/Selace.A
Trojan:Java/Selace.B

There is no concrete information on how to get rid of these unwanted visitors and prevent them from inviting themselves back. Please help! The virus keeps on re-directing me 80% of the time...

Thank you!

Hi Barbara and welcome to seven forums

What do you have as an anti virus now?
If you can get to malwarebytes web page you can download from them and run. It isnt as known as a major AV and therefor less likely to be blocked
You can also try to boot in safe mode with networking.

Let us know what you find and how we can help

Thank you for the prompt response... I have McAfee. I ran Malwarebytes last night (I had fake alerts, slowness and re-directing as symptoms) and it did pick up some issues, which were all removed (and I restarted the PC). Today, I ran Windows Safety Scanner, because one of the infection symptoms was still there (the re-directing). There is very little info on the virus in question, other then the two trojans come as a package with the Exploit bit... So, what should be my next step?

Thank you once again!

PS: I am running the Malwarebytes again... I will report on the result within the next hour and 15 minutes.

PS2: Also, when I tried to locate the infected files on c: drive, I could not... They were just not there (at least, not under the given address).

OK. Malwarebytes just completed its scan and did not pick up on any of the problems. But, they are still there, as the incessant re-directing proves... HELP!

Thanx,

Barbara;

I found some links about your Trojan:Java/Selace.A:

Encyclopedia entry: Trojan:Java/Selace.A - Learn more about malware - Microsoft Malware Protection Center

Java Byte/Verify and Trojan Java/Classloader - Wilders Security Forums

Java Trojan and Trojans Are Hitting Us Hard!

Vmyths

Microsoft suggests installing a different anti virus (you will want to disable your McAfee while running other anti virus programs) like

http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

I like AVG Free - Download Free Antivirus and Antispyware for Windows 7, Vista and XP

Link to some others: MSE Voted Best Free Anti-Virus!

You might need to use another computer to download the anti virus programs and install them on yours?

Let us know how it goes?

Robert: Thank you for the links. I scanned them quickly and think I may be able to find some good info there. It is late now though. I will deal with this again tomorrow and report on progress (I hope there will be one ). Meanwhile, if anything else comes to mind, please post.

Thank you once again!

It showed up on my PC too.

Hi Barbara,
I ran the the windows protection center on my PC too and the same problems showed up. Sneaky little devils! However, when I went to the path indicated I was able to see the JRECache file that was mentioned in the output. You may not have been able to see it because of having the Hide Protected Operating System Files box checked in Explorer. You can uncheck this box and see if the files show up. I was able to delete them without any problem. Afterward, you may want to check re-hide the OS files. The checkbox can be found under Explorer - Tools - FolderOptions - View. It about the 8th item in the list. BTW - I haven't noticed any Redirection problems or unwanted Pop-ups on my PC while surfing. Does anyone know what the Symptom are in regard to these Java programs? I mention this because you may have something else hiding somewhere in your PC. You may want to run an external Virus checker or contact a site like PCPitStop and submit a HJT log for analysis. Good Luck!
