Transmitting viruses? Is my site compromised?

I received below email from Norton (?). Do you think this is real?

Dear cPanel User,

Your webhosting account has been transmitting viruses to our servers and will be deactivated permanently if not resolved.

You are urgently required to sanitize your webhosting account with Norton FTP Scanner; otherwise, your access to webhosting services will be deactivated

Click here now to scan and sanitize your webhosting account

Note that failure to sanitize your webhosting account immediately will lead to permanent deactivation without warning.

We are very sorry for the inconveniences this might have caused you and we assure you that everything will return to normal as soon as you have sanitized your webhosting account.

Re: Transmitting viruses?

Hovering my mouse over where that link is sending you, it looks like a compromised WordPress site. This looks like a phishing attempt to try and steal the login information for your hosting account to me.
