    I have a virus issue with my site http://www.foodiefundraising.com. It shows up as a alert on some machines running IE and Safari but not Firefox. One of my visitors said he was getting the following:

    Virus found HTML/Framer;”foodiefundraising.com/favicon.ico”;””;”4/11/2009, 8:56:49 AM”;”file”;”C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe”
    Virus found HTML/Framer;”foodiefundraising.com/”;””;”4/11/2009, 8:56:48 AM”;”file”;”C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe”
    Virus found HTML/Framer;”foodiefundraising.com/”;””;”4/11/2009, 8:56:04 AM”;”file”;”C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe”

    Virus found HTML/Framer;”foodiefundraising.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/09/definition-graphic.jpg”;””;”4/9/2009, 4:02:28 PM”;”file”;”C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe”
    Virus found HTML/Framer;”foodiefundraising.com/robots.txt”;””;”4/9/2009, 4:02:27 PM”;”file”;”C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe”

    Also, I notice that when the page opens up it starts to transferring data to a URL other than foodiefundraising.com.

    I have contacted BlueHost (my hosting company) and they told me that the only way to correct the problem is to download the WP file. Then sanitize it. Then upload it back the server. I have tried Norton, MacAfee,and MicroTrends. Nothing was found wih the scans. Can anyone shed some light on this?
