Default Kaspersky warns this site as trojan downloader?

Must be something wrong... I know, but everytime I enter this site Kaspersky throws a warning at me that this site has a hidden trojan. Must be some sort of False Positive me thinks but was quite alarmed.

Supposedly from this site there's a: Trojan-Downloader.JS.Iframe.bxv which you can see on their updated virus list:

http://www.kaspersky.co.uk/viruswatc...h_virus=iframe

Anyone have any ideas. Also would hope that Kaspersky's false positives would NOT be turning peeps away from this site.

It's just thickbox, an js library, also located here. Kaspersky just doesn't like 'compressed' javascript, as it is often used as malware loader. In this case however everything is fine.

Antivirus software often sucks like that.

Ahh thanks mate, tried adding it to trusted sites but to no avail and went onto the link you gave and here's what it gave me:

I'll contact Kaspersky to tell them this is a brilliant site with no malicious code whatsoever. They are smelly heads and are being naughty aren't they

I guess it decides that anything that injects an iframe is a trojan, which is definitely a venn diagram situation. Some trojans inject iframes, but not all things that inject iframes are trojans
