I received an email from my mom saying that she got a weird email from me suggesting that she visit some site. Since I sent no such email (Yahoo email) I ran a full virus scan (Avast Internet Security) and it only found EndProcess.exe Win32:KillApp-W [PUP] which turned out to be a legitimate file. I then ran MalewareBytes Anti-Maleware but that did not find anything. I then ran a boot sector scan and the following 2 items were found and moved to the virus chest.

Name 12d71bb5-60aa3439 Virus Java:CVE-2012-0507-MU [Expl]
Name outa\outa.class Virus Java:CVE-2012-0507-LK [Expl]

I spent some time with google trying to find information on the above items and found very little information available. My question is what are these 2 items and could they have taken over my yahoo email and sent unauthorized emails? I am also concerned that there could be other things that were not found. What are my next steps? Should I be concerned? Do I need to wipe out my OS and start over?

Hi,

The fact that someone got a e-mail pretending to be from you doesn't mean your computer is infected that has usual on the old days, today the malware don't use that technique because almost every mail server have protections against sending direct e-mails from the clients.

What you should do is login to your Yahoo email account and change the password right away because someone could get access to the account and send e-mail in your name. Make sure you choose a strong password and also set a second e-mail to recover the password or set a mobile phone.

Also check this:
- How to tell who has been logging in to your Account
- Tips for creating a secure, strong password

Because of those virus found on java cache you should remove all the Java versions you have installed, restart the computer and then install the last Java version from http://www.java.com make sure you choose a custom installation so you can choose if you want to install the suggested extras.
