Please feel free to respond with a e-mail.
Best Regards,

There is no need for concern on your part here as this is what we call a false positive. The link and file in question is one of the tools that we use for malware detection and removal. Sometimes anti-virus programs will report that certain files and links from Geeks to Go (and some other malware removal sites) are infected because of some coding in the various tools.

I will contact the necessary personnel in relation to this so that this can be corrected.

Thanks for letting us know. :)

Hi Octagonal,
I thought being this site it was most probably a false positive. Had to do the ethically correct thing and report. Enjoy your time away.
Best Regards,
Gilmister
