false\positive?

Postby savagcl » Sun Apr 04, 2010 8:19 am

This showed up on a site I visit constantly. The site is monitored by
some very smart (MVP) people with years of experience. The site is a
forum site ranging from OS's to malware removals and then some.

Anyway, this popped-up from AVG when i clicked on one of the forum
questions.

File name: www.windowsbbs.com/external.php?
type=RSS2&forumids=18

Threat name: Exploit Link to known exploit site (type 750).

The admin at their site assured me that it was a false\positive and
that there was no threat present
Indeed, I went and reviewed the question with no harm done.

Thought you might want to check it out.


thanks,
