Trojan.Maliframe!html is a detection for HTML files that contain hidden iframe elements that attempt to perform malicious actions on the computer. This detection is generally encountered when visiting a malicious Web page, which attempts to quietly direct the user to a malicious URL while the current page is loading.

This detection differs from standard virus definitions in that it is used to catch malicious iframe attacks, as opposed to detecting a particular threat. The detection will block an attack at inception, before the malicious code actually arrives on the computer. If your Symantec antivirus produce displays a warning with this name, this is a good indication that the attack has been stopped.
