    false positive. anti-virus programs identify "known" viruses through a library. they also detect "suspicious" files through algorithms and heuristics. these can often be wrong. why does this happen? well we have extremely complicated javascript code that determines where your mouse is so that you can move chess pieces around the board. that can look a little suspicious to some AV programs. :)
