At the web page http://www.avira.de/de/threats/section/details/id_vir/1157/worm_netsky.d.dam.html you can find a description of Worm/Netsky.HB. If you click on "Vollständig" to view the full description avast!
alerts (image) while the browser tries to open http://www.avira.de/de/threats/section/fulldetails/id_vir/1157/worm_netsky.d.dam.html.



I am sure that Avira does not spread malware through its website so the alert must be a false/positive.

Interestingly I don't get an alert if I go direct to the second link (firefox with NoScript extension). Nor do I get an alert going to the first link and clicking, "Vollständig" strange.

I also tried it using avant browser (IE clone) and no alert.

I suggest you get the latest VPS (080416-1) as yours is out of date and try the link/s again.

If you look at the image you will see the VPS is a few days old, so it may be something which has been resolved.

I updated the VPS and the false/positive was seen no more.
