Virus or False Postitive?

    In going through some Hubs today, my Avast kept kicking in and saying that it blocked a malicious site.
    The site was yield manager.
    Is this real, or is Avast being over sensitive all of a sudden?
    This is the first time I have seen this happen here.

      I am SOOOOO glad you brought this up! Avast is having some bad issues with seeing false positives. A week ago all my sites triggered a trojan warning.

      But I knew there was not. So I uninstalled it and now have AVG. It shows nothing on my sites. There have been discussions about this on many forums right now.

      Even the makers of avast said on a forum that they made a mistake and that is why it's showing false positives. Until they get it fixed I would get rid of it and use AVG.

      Here's a link to a thread for much more information on it.

    That's intersting!  The same happened to me earlier.

    Virus/Worm - Vps Version: 091227-0  to be exact.

    Recheck your settings and blow it away.

    Good Luck.
