Are you seeing a virus message on this blog? actns/swif.t

I just started seeing this message pop up (from my etrust realtime protection) on a few sites including this blog!!!! how can that be?


A quick bit of surfing took me to

'Apparently some sort of relatively aggressive virus is affecting certain embedded YouTube videos. Some are saying it affects IE and Firefox users, while others say it’s only going after IE. The virus is called Actns/Swif.T and seems to contain a redirect to a phishing website embedded within a SWF file.

The site apparently installs Antivirus 2009, which is malware. We’ll pull our most recent YouTube embeds, but be careful because this one appears to have just broken out today. If you find yourself being automatically redirected or experience other weird pop-ups, especially for something called Antivirus 2009, don’t click on anything.'

The only Youtube video on the main page is the TronMan one so thats gone, and so is the message WTF is going on :S
