Every time I've opened an mse question today my virus checker has put up an alert from http://cdn.sstatic.net/js/wmd.js?v=4299f69ea585.
Yesterday all was fine.
I understand that cdn is some technology used by all the SE sites.
Has anyone else seen this? Is there anything I can do? It's very annoying.

Edit 1 I am using Avira version 12. The screen shot in the mso post in Willie's answer is exactly what I get.
Edit 2 I have updated my Avira virus files and rebooted, and the alerts have gone away on the mse posts (which sounds like end of problem) but I still get the alerts opening mso posts. I think I'll wait for Avira to sort themselves out.

Send a feedback to the vendor of your antivirus software, since it is likely a false positive.

Here's a related discussion at Meta.SO.
