The PSI is not a Malware scanner. The goal of the PSI is to scan your system, and apply all needed Security Fixes. Most Malware relies on the prescence of Insecure Software to take over your system, and thus running the PSI, and installing updates where recommended, can greatly help you avoid Malware infection.

However, the PSI makes no attempt to identify Malware already on your system. For more information about the PSI, please see:

hope this helps.

Someone using Sun Java update manager as a trojan

My security software has isolated 2 attempts at trojan uploads by Sun Java update manager.

Someone needs to slap these goons upside the head!

2nd time....

Sun Java seems to be experiencing problems obviously!
