Chase.com is turning me over to Russian gangsters?

I understand how phishing works via emails, but how am I being taken from a known trusted site to phishing page, after having entered my account signon on the first page?

I go to www.chase.com in Firefox. The verisign thing in the URL bar tells me it's really chase. I enter my account signin as always, hit enter, and I'm taken to a page that's obviously a phishing attempt (asks me for checking account number, ATM PIN, card number/exp/security code, etc.)
How is this happening? Chase tells me I have a virus on my computer. (AVG says I don't) I thought firefox was supposed to be resistent to browser based exploits? Could this really be caused by a local virus? And how serious is this?
