    Exclamation Trojans with last few updates of NetBeans

    Anyone got viruses with the last few updates of NetBeans?
    I updated 50% before my connection timed out and then it crashed (Netbeans), PC was showing signs, I scanned and I found about 8 and now Netbeans wont work. :/

    I don't use NetBeans, i'm sure if you re download it from suns website you will find it is virus free and that a different virus attacked the files once you had installed it previously.

    The last download I had in weeks was Netbeans and from sun's site. Signs where there about 2-3 hours after Netbeans update, and NetBeans is unusable at all right after restarting it after the update!

    Yes, that is the real netbeans website.

    You will want to make sure that the virus you have isn't jumping from another source to Netbeans as many viruses do this sort of thing (exploiting weaknesses in certain programs)

    seems like we've got quite a few Eclipse users here.

    Do you have a log of what viruses they were?
