it sounds like the forum of sas might have been hijacked.

Pretty useless link that, no mention of the SAS forum being hijacked - and it's a 2009 topic!!

hey i just posted that to show that sites that many people go to is usually targeted my malware so it seems like what have happen here with the sas forum.

While there's no new AVAST database --- it's still at 121104-0,  which blocked the SAS forum when I tested it this morning ---
I'm showing that I received a streaming update at 2:17 PM (USA - Eastern Standard Time)... and now, I CAN access the SAS forums.

But in an ironic twist, Webroot SecureAnywhere is now blocking the SAS forum:
Lenovo T530 laptop, Intel Core i5-3320M @ 2.60 GHz, 8GB RAM, Windows 7 Pro SP1 (64-bit), avast! 17 Free, MBAM3 Pro, Windows Firewall, MVPS HOSTS file, OpenDNS Family Shield, Zemana AntiLogger Free, SpywareBlaster, IE11 & Firefox [both using WOT (IE set to WARN, FF set to BLOCK)], WinPatrol PLUS, uBlock Origin, MBAE, MCShield, CryptoPrevent, SAS (on-demand scanner). 
[I believe computer-users who sandbox (Sandboxie) are acting prudently.]

Yeap.. I already restored my SAS link to my "Favorites" and entered SAS forum. NO alerts. ;D
