    I've added the modlook tag to this post so a moderator will take a look soon and be able to help more. I highly doubt that the original plugin files at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-deals/ contain a virus. It's much more likely that this happened once you installed it on your website.

  3. modlook's the wrong tag (it's lucky that I happen to be a mod who likes poking at possibly narky plugins).

    The right thing, if you think a plugin has a virus, is to contact plugins[at]wordpress.org

    Looking at http://plugins.svn.wordpress.org/wp-deals/ I don't see anything obvious, of course when I activate it I get

    The plugin generated 186 characters of unexpected output during activation. If you notice “headers already sent” messages, problems with syndication feeds or other issues, try deactivating or removing this plugin.

    And a LOT of errors with wp-debug on.
