    MSE showing as having a virus with Kapersky

    Hello,

    Just went to moneysavingexpert and my virus checker (kapersky) says it has a trojan and blocks it. Anyone else want to check? I did it on laptop and PC. Should email them really, but dont have their contact details...

    I have scanned my PC - its only that webpage. Kapersky did update yesterday so maybe a new defenition is wrong? Its on 2 PCs in my house (laptop and PC) using Kapersky.

    Fine for me using Avira

    Hmmm... possibly false positive then, alhough kap may know something others dont. :P - anyone else got Kap to try it? Im sure its fine and just a new script they added or something yesterday...

    It looks like at least one other person has had this problem but this was on 3rd November so it's not due to a recent update

    Hmmm... the plot thickens. I am using firefox though. So unless there is a banner thats on their site and infected I think its a false positive.

    EDIT: Just read the date on there - 2004!
