So I have a Trojan horse virus Exploit:Java/CVE in my Toshiba laptop. I followed some instructions online and removed some registry files. But after I restarted my computer, it didn’t go away. I wonder if those removed registry files were important? Did I do anything wrong? Will that mess up my laptop? 

Exploit:Java/CVE Virus Definition

Exploit:Java/CVE, you may think this is an important program or file of Windows operating system. But it’s not. On the contrary, this is a very harmful Trojan horse virus detected by some famous anti-virus recently. If you are familiar with Trojan horse, you may know this similar one: Exploit:Java CVE-2012-0507.CG.  The name is almost the same as the latter, isn’t it. In fact, they belong to the same series Trojan horse virus. The name of this tiny Trojan horse is as ordinary as other Trojan horses; however, its damage power is not tiny at all.

Exploit:Java/CVE Virus can be everywhere when you open some advertisement pages or malicious websites. Hackers often hide this virus in some click icons such as files download buttons, play buttons and some irresistible pop-up windows. When you carelessly click these icons which are full of potential danger, it means that you make a condition for Exploit:Java/CVE to access your PC, though your real intention is not for this satanic stuff. The intelligent crafty Trojan once access your PC, it can be checkless in your computer and capriciously do anything as the prior designed goal of the program demands.

Why Didn’t My Anti-virus Program Remove This Trojan Horse Virus?

This will be the first question you want to ask if you get this Trojan virus infection. As what you can see, Exploit:Java/CVE virus will give itself a name just like it’s one important file of Windows operating system. It just takes advantage of the vulnerabilities of the operating system and your anti-virus so that it can escape from scanning, much less than killing it. When this rootkit disguises as an important file of Windows operating system,  Windows Fire Wall or your anti-virus program will take it for a safe file and won’t kill it. Even if your anti-virus can distinguish it as a virus, the virus can make use of the vulnerabilities of your anti-virus so that it can’t be removed. No perfect anti-virus can remove all smart viruses.
