The script is there, at the bottom of the page.

Looks like injected. Normally happens with Wordpress or other CMSs.

I've just been on this site with IE9, Firefox7 and Chrome15 and I use AVG2012 free edition which is up to date. There is no notes to say of any problems. It might just be either an over active virus checker or someone is trying to scare people away from the site.

Interesting if one googles the site owner tongue. Unlikely to be a hacker.

I seem to recall a thread somewhere recently mentioning Kaspersky giving a false positive for this site..

NOD and 32 doesn't seem to have a problem with it, and Comodo Firewall has not flagged it up either. both are usually pretty hot at intervening if there is a problem.
