I've not heard of this. However, Netscape are not in the business of
virus detection, and no-one has yet established the existence of any
Java virus, though there are other possible forms of attack.
There was a site which randomly put up an alert claiming the system
had just been infected with the Psychic Neon Buddha Jesus virus (or
something like that). There's no such animal: just a joke script.
I can't altogether promise that your alert is a similar hoax, especially
on the information you've given, but I'd keep your bullshit sensors
Mail me the details, if you like, and I may be able to tell you more.
