    Hello,

    I am using wordpress AntiVirus Plugin, and it has come up with the following messages after a scan of /themes/twentyeleven/functions.php, indicating a possible virus:

    require( dirname( __FILE__ ) . '/inc/theme-options.php ...

    require( dirname( __FILE__ ) . '/inc/widgets.php' );

    I am pretty new to wordpress and don't have enough knowledge of coding to recognise whether there is indeed a virus here... is anybody able to advise me please?

    Thank you very much

    it's ok - that's a "false positive"

    you will get those a lot on theme files
