    Its does not indicate that the server or your computer is infected. Java runs on client side (your computer) and not on the server side. The popup is only a trick to have you click on it, so that you will be taken to a malicious website that will infect your computer with a virus. So, the popup appearing doesn't mean that you computer is infected.

    What is the assumption when this popup and website is loaded in a browser? Does it indicate a problem on the server (ie. the server has been hacked) or is it indicative of a piece of malware on my computer?
