Virus in attachment

Hello,

This could be a false alarm but when trying to download a theme from vbulletin.org my antivirus prescans the file and is advising me that the attachment is infected with a virus.

Here is the data:

Virus: HTML:Iframe-inf (14x) (Engine B)
Virus found while downloading Web content.
Address: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=219299


Can anyone else confirm this or is my antivirus giving off false alarms?

I wouldn't be so sure.. I tested it and also got a virus threat report from that zip (HTML/Framer).

No one will probably ever know, unless the author comes out and says something.
