When editing my previous post I got this:

enter image description here

How does it come? It seems it only occurs on this particular post, Running Exe in Firefox why do I get an error, not on the one I am writing here for example.

When clicking on info it indicates chrome.exe.

How is it possible on a website?

My first guess is that RunExe('C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /c start winword.exe'); looks suspicious to some heuristic since it's similar to strings that occur in exploits.

In addition you have code in there that instantiates an ActiveX object, once again suspicious:

MyObject = new ActiveXObject("WScript.Shell")

So I'd say it's just yet another false positive. Anti malware/virus heuristics have those all the time.

ok thanks I prefer that it is false positive :) – Rebol Tutorial Jun 25 '11 at 16:13

The best idea would be to press the button "More Info" which should detail the "IE Input validation exploit" further. Please note that this is not a Chrome exploit and is detected by your anti-virus.

I clicked on info and it says chrome.exe – Rebol Tutorial Jun 24 '11 at 19:26
My question is not even about chrome it is about securing website – Rebol Tutorial Jun 24 '11 at 19:27
How is your question related to securing a website? Your question is about your overly paranoid antivirus. – CodesInChaos Jun 24 '11 at 19:35
