    I wish these sort of things would be done in a controlled environment.

    We've seen the majority of these are located after the closing html tag in the file. You can locate the files on your PC if you search for unescape and then look at the code. If it's something you didn't put there, it could be either one of these infections (I'm not sure what they're called yet) or a martuz or gumblar type of malscript.

    If it's a martuz or gumblar, it will probably be located after the closing head tag, but before the opening body tag.

    That's been our experience anyway. YMMV

    Have had about 60 calls on virus showing up as goldrun, detected by malwarebytes-antimalware. So far only the customers with malwarebytes, and avira both installed are calling in. This all started yesterday, guessing this might be it? so far, we are just re-imaging, as none of the scanners we use seem to repair/remove the problem.

    Yeah, I've seen several sites infected with this; it's an iframe embedded worm originating from a series of Chinese servers. Pretty easy to block but nonetheless very annoying.
