Hello Vanjos,

Avira has a high false positive alarm rate. I advice you to replace/change Avira if possible.

To make sure that your PC is clean of any malware infection, do a full scan using Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware.

Download and install it, then read this tutorial on how to use the program.

It may be a false positive, or it may be not. What are the associated files? You can upload them to these two sites.

I don't think it necessary to "replace" Avira as it is respected program. But as noted, all programs can, and sometimes do have false positives - that is certainly better than missing some malicious code. Therefore I don't recommend automatically removing something that is tagged. Instead, I recommend confirming it is malware and certainly the recommended use of MBAM is my first choice for a supplemental scanner.

Also, there are several reputable on-line scanners from folks like Kaspersky, Trend Micro, and PandaSoft that you can use to double check too.

If you choose to replace your anti-malware program, there are several excellent anti-malware programs to choose from, some free, some not. I recommend you chose one that performs consistently well in tests by the following respected labs:

Hi, vanjos.

In checking the Avira forum, it appears that you are being alerted because there is a hidden IFRAME that loads a script, which may also load advertisements. The reason you receive the alert is because malware uses this mechanism.

I suggest you submit the file to Avira as a "suspected false positive" and see what the analysis is from Avira Lab.
