Windows 10: What is Java Worm

    What is Java Worm

    Today, after my system has been idle for a couple hours, I sat down and sow a small message box saying something about Java Worm infection. The message had a row of asterisks above and below the message. Don't know what program generated the message, but I closed in and ran a few scans which found no threats.
    I googled "java worm" and found much info on this.

    I was hoping someone here could clear up my concerns about this threat.

    What scans did you run?
    Worms can spread throughout your entire network, and are a real pain.
    Please fill in your system specs.
