    Hi guys.

    I was working on a piece of software for work when suddenly my anti-virus program popped up to tell me about a malware detection. In my own program.
    More specifically in the .class file generated from my java source code.
    The .class file is generated by eclipse; I have no idea how this could be possible.

    The report was about an exploit with the beautiful name of "EXP/11-3544.CS.1".
    This exploit is said to abuse a bug in JVM version 7.23 or lower.

    I dont know how I should feel about this. I guess this could be a false positive, but for now I am pretty confused.

    Is is repeatable? If you delete the file and Eclipse generates it again, will it still pop up?

    Nope. Deleted the file, was recompiled, nothing popped up anymore.
    Also told my boss about it and he had the entire repository scanned.

    Might very well be a false positive of a too protective anti-virus program. Or the guy working on the application before me was either a moron or a huge dick.
