Virus alert from AVG in IrfanViewPortable v.4.41

Corrupted executable in the Arabic.dll. Anyone else finding this? Is it a false alert or genuine threat?

AVG False Positive

It's an AVG false positive. They happen regularly, often enough that you don't need to worry about reporting it to us or the Irfanview author... just to AVG after you confirm it's their problem with Virus Total. According to Virus Total, AVG currently lists it as clean. So it either was fixed in the current update (select to update again) or was just broken in the current update and Virus Total is using a working one from a few hours ago.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
