@ChrisF first noted it here: "Just got a harmful web page warning from MSO - HTML-Script.inf - any ideas what's going on?"

And now users in the SF chat are also reporting this.

The SF user who reported it is running Avast, and got the alarm immediately after doing a defs-DB update. –  sysadmin1138 Apr 11 '11 at 19:49

I don't think this is remotely valid. Probably an error in their anti-virus software.

Yes, there was apparently a new push from Avast shortly after that reversed that issue. We didn't think it was valid either. –  jcolebrand Apr 11 '11 at 20:03
At this point I think it's pretty well confirmed that someone at Avast fat-fingered an update. I mostly just wanted this to be posted on account of "oh noes! is anyone else having this problem!" for other users. I believe it could even be deleted in a week or three (it's a very temporal problem, but updates may not be countered for some time) –  jcolebrand Apr 11 '11 at 22:09
