JS.Exception.Exploit - 07/14/02 04:20 AM

this is the first time i got a virus from a webpage (at least the first one I am aware of), it is called JS.Exception.Exploit and my Norton AntiVirus detected it right away.
it is apparently a trojan horse type virus, whatever the fuck that is, and after running a scan, nothing was detected on the computer.
so...does anyone have some cents (or sense) to throw in about this little java script dealie? i think i'm in the clear now, since Norton picked up on it right away.
Norton said it could not repair the file, and i'm pretty sure it quarantined it. i purged all of the protected files so it should be ok.
