Most big corporation anti virus software errs on the side of paranoia. I'm not saying this is a false alarm but on past performance most AV software constantly produces fresh scripts which contain plenty of mistakes and the potential for multiple false alarms, especially in software, but also on websites.

Caution is of course advised, but on balance these scares are found to be unjustified.
