Question Confused...possible virus?

Okay I've got a weird thing going on.

I don't have any issues what so ever. I'd say that the majority of my users have no issues at all either. But 4 or 5 users are reporting that their anti-virus is telling them that my site has a problem.

Here is the virus that is being detected: JS/Redir

Here is a screen shot of the anti virus from the user: http://i365.photobucket.com/albums/o...ledetected.jpg

Here is my screen shot of the same anti virus program: http://i365.photobucket.com/albums/o...upons/safe.png

There's some info here: http://badwarebusters.org/main/itemview/18247

your site was either hacked and the virus was added or possibly it's being introduced by an ad running on your site... this would be more likely to be true if yo display ads from a company other than google which may be more lax on the ads they deliver (and therefore pay better).

That is what is weird....i ran a couple of simple online tests...to see if any sites thought we had something, and nothing....do you think it's AVG's virus definition?

I've also noticed a couple other forums that reported issues.....

Honestly it's possible the problem is with AVG but it's very unlikely IMO.

From AVG

the JS/Redir detection should be corrected with the upcoming virus database update (Virus DB: 271.1.1/3020). Please update your AVG to this version (this update should be released in about 2 hours) and re-check the issue.

Thank you for your patience.
