Some supporters of Anonymous who’ve downloaded tools to help in attacks may have unwittingly installed malware. Who’s responsible for this ironic infection remains unclear, but what if it’s the work of officials?
Crazy as the idea might be, law enforcement officials would certainly benefit if Anonymous supporters were deterred from voluntarily taking part in attacks. But surely those in authority wouldn’t resort to spreading malware in an attempt to crack down on criminal activity, would they?

A "false positive" is when antivirus software identifies a non-malicious file as a virus. When this happens, it can cause serious problems. For example, if an antivirus program is configured to immediately delete or quarantine infected files, a false positive in an essential file can render the operating system or some applications unusable.
