Java ByteVerify - detected, but is it a problem ?

System has had an AVG detection of a strain of this via myspace group.
A full scan finds infected files in .jar archive (.class, etc)in IE
temp files. I've read some old posts about updating to the latest
version of Sun Java vs. MS Java and I can do that.

A question first: If a system has the latest MS updates, is this
vulnerability still an issue (so perhaps it's an AVG detection, but
there's no danger of execution/infection)?

It seems like it's been known a long time... are MS VM based systems
now safe from actual infection by this ?

Thanks,
