My Webrook antivirus sweeper has on the list Tr0j/JavaSnd-A, Troj/Java
DI-AH, and Mal/Java Dldr-B, and I "always quarantined" these since two are
listed with "Mal" and the other with Troj".  Two were added to the list in
the past few days during the Webook scans.

I Googled these to see what they are, but could not get any definite answer
as to what they are.

Are these really malware or viruses?  Are they common viruses today?  Since
they have the "Java" name at the beginning, I wonder...

Thanks in advance.
