I installed the newest update (when prompted by a Java update icon in system tray). The system is an eMachines XP. I was told it installed successfully. Afterward, when the computer user tried to access a yahoo game, a pop-up which had "security warning" on top, (which I've never seen happen on his system previously), appeared, asking permission for a program change info on the computer. He gave it permission, which stopped the pop-up, but when I scanned his computer with Microsoft Security Essentials, "Exploit:Java/CVE-2011-3544" was found. I clicked to remove it as was suggest by the SE scan results, but the window has appeared again, this time when trying to access another game.
Is this exploit from the current Java update? Is there any way to get rid of it?
