VBS:Malware-gen detection

Hey, One of my friends came to my house today and he had Avast antivirus on his mac. Right after he connected to my internet, his antivirus was detecting VBS-Malware-gen none stop. So i went to my computer and did a full scan with norton and nothing got detected. Should I worry about it?

There are quite a few reporting this detection as a false positive with the latest virus definitions.

I know this is the Windows version but my guess is it affects both.  In fact this is also reported for the Mac version.
