Well, viruses cannot really be contained in hyper-text files, but hyper-text
files can trigger viruses in existence. What does this imply? That if an
infected computer visits your site, it will suffer.

properly, should you be really concerned about it?

What is the URL? Or the file? What is the vulnerability?
