Windows Live OneCare JS/Obfuscator.C Warning

I got a complaint from a colleague of mine regarding while browsing a certain website where Windows Live OneCare pops up a warning of a certain dangerous tool JS/Obfuscator.C

I checked out the website and just concluded that the alarm is a false positive. Windows Live OneCare warned about the Obfuscator when the tool's really used to obfuscate the URL of the page to an unintelligible form, quite effective for low-life script kiddies but not for the true h4ck3rs.

My tip: screw Windows One LiveCare! Microsoft should focus more on improving security of their products before making and selling products to improve the inherent insecurity of their own product. Such a silly situation indeed.
