I am getting a security warning (see attached file). I only get it when I go to a Wordpress website that I run and it only appears when the slideshow on the website switches to a new image.

It does not do it on all computers and it only does it in the Firefox browser.

I cannot find anything online regarding this warning. Can anyone help?

So this error you are seeing means that the Java applet that this site is trying to run on your machine was built with an old vulnerable version of Java.  Since you have the most up to date Java VM running on your machine, it will not make a difference.  Firefox is just being security conscience.

It turns out it WAS a virus. Fortunately my computer caught it. It had nothing to do with old versions of Java.
