Malware: B.C.Exploit.CVE_2013_0019

I started a scan with Clamvax and it found this virus:

B.C.Exploit.CVE_2013_0019

I was using Mozilla as my browser. I think I am getting this on visiting a website. I removed Mozilla from my computer. I did remove this virus with Clamvax. Is that all I need to do??

What do you have Clamvax do with it? Delete or quarantine ? I'd delete it as well if you are just quarantining it.

Deleting the browser probably was not necessary, but for the paranoid you can delete the Mozilla files and reinstall it.

Google tells me that this "virus" was most likely a false positive triggered by a specific version of virus definitions that's already been updated.

It's not a virus. That vulnerability only affects Windows systems running Internet Explorer. It cannot affect Mac OS X in any way.
