So i was scanning my C: Drive which has Vista Home Premium on using Microsoft Security Essentials and came across this:

Exploit:Win32/Pdfjsc.gen!A- Servere.

Category: Exploit

file:C:\Users\George\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Low\Content.IE5\QEO20EWQ\readme[1].pdf->(pdf0000:)



I deleted it straight away. But does any one know about this virus yet.

Yes, I think so. I remember some talk about Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader vulnerabilities a few months ago. We all updated. It attacks when you visit a webpage that contains malicious PDF Files. Or if you open an e-mail message containing PDF file as an attachment. (Clean you disk) You might do a system restore to before attack...
