No, often that code is in a piece of script that's been injected into the web page somewhere. (In this case, most likely in an advert). To me, "a virus" implies something that's installed and running as an independent process on my machine - not something that's on the web page and running in the browser as long as I look at that page.

Maybe we mean different things by "a virus", but you did say that you thought my machine might have a virus, whereas in my terms it's the web page that has "a virus" (and it's not a virus).
