Java does not give a virus, but an applet or something that runs on java may give a virus. That is why sometimes it asks you if you trust a company or publisher when you run java.

A running java program only has access to the memory allocated to it by the Java Runtime Environment. Java by design does not allow access to absolute memory locations which is required to scan for memory resident viruses.
