    Java bytever A-1 virus/trojan

    I noticed something was up with my computer and ran the online virus scan at trendmicro.com. It reported back that i had three Java bytever A-1 files, which i deleted and my computer was back to normal.

    When i did a search on google however i couldnt really find any info on what it does. Anyone know anything?

    It seemed to be using my internet connection for something though, i guess using me as a spam server.

    Sounds like the common byteverifier bug in java, get up to date with windows update to stop it happening again

    EDIT: Something exploiting the byteverifier bug (a lot of viruses and spyware do).
