Some users reported that their AV was detecting JS/Exploit-BO virus, on sites like ESPN and Friendster, for instance.

The problem is with the McAfee AV.

McAfee just released an Emergency DAT to fix the false on some JavaScripts, detecting as JS/Exploit-BO on virus database  (DAT file) 5197 released today.

The new DAT just released is 5198 and the url to download it is:
