Exclamation Antivirus blocking an "infection" on IWSTI

This is the info that Avast antivirus is showing me.

Quote:
URL: Pw: gigantic thread of awesomeness

Infection: HTML:Script-inf

Process: G:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe

Obviously, I'm running Mozilla Firefox on Windows 7. Anybody care to explain how something from IWSTI is attempting to infect my computer? Or at least why my antivirus is interpreting this?

I sent Kevin a message about it a couple of days ago. I was blocked using an hospital server the other day due to them recognizing Malware here. I will email him as well.

Interesting. I was at the hospital so I'll blame it on their server.

If you still get this message, please email me at kevin @iwsti.com. I need some assistance trying to pinpoint the problem by being able to duplicate this on your machine and then allowing me to take action deactivating different elements of the website as a way to test it. In exchange, I will be providing lifetime platinum memberships to the individual who can take the time to help.

I was able to reproduce it. I made several changes. I did not expect the changes that I made to solve the problem. I am suspicious that the problem still exists, but I can't get AVAST to go off again. Can you or anyone reading this confirm whether you still experience the issue?

Thank you,
-Kevin

I can't replicate the problem again. Whatever it is you did has done the trick for now, but I will continue to be on the lookout for any issues like this.
