I have just read the article over on nettuts about protecting wordpress.

I have installed a number of the plugins including the antivirus one.

After installing a theme from theme forest I ran the the anti virus plugin and i got red boxes/alerts for: /themes/”themename”/thumb and within that file the word file is highlighted.

Now I am just wondering if anyone knows why this might be? Is it a virus? or is it just due to how the file is coded?

On a broader note, how many of you use security plugins and which ones do you use?
