Interesting, do you have a copy of the message? What antivirus program do you use?

I just tried it myself with a program called Avira AntiVir. It did not detect anything. So that could mean it is a false-positive, or my virus checker is no good!

I use AVG antivirus software, and it gave me a warning message stating that a threat was detected. I immediately ran the software and it came up as a trojan. Hope this helps.

I'll have to download AVG and give it a shot. I thought it might have been an "adware" warning or something similar which you can often ignore but a trojan does not sound good.

AVG identifies it as Trojan Horse PSW.Banker5.BSMK

I found this website called virustotal where you can upload a file and it tests it across heaps of different antivirus softwares. Here is the report which says 5/43 of the scanners think it is some sort of trojan. Another 2 identify it as a casino software.

So my gut instinct is that it is a false positive.

I finally received an answer to this from Grand Vegas:

Quote:

Although we monitor the sites regularly for this type of issue we hadn’t identified this particular instance so we’d like to thank everyone for bringing this matter to our attention.

AVG Technologies has recently updated their virus definitions. These definitions have proven to be overly sensitive in some cases and have resulted in certain software applications registering a false positive. AVG has assured us that the warning will be removed.
