Threat blocked - every Facebook page and some other sites
« on: June 07, 2013, 07:48:47 PM »
I have gotten 33 of these this morning.  It's getting kind of annoying.  They are apparently due to Avast not liking optimized-by.rubiconproject.com and calling it HTML:Iframe-AMG
.  Is Facebook really using that, and is it really a trojan dropper?

Other sites like http://www.drudgereport.com/ Drudge Report are also causing the popup when browsed.

Naturally I am glad Avast is blocking trojan, if real, but perhaps Avast should reconsider this constant popup?

Thanks.  Thing is, I don't know if it is FP or not.  Doesn't seem impossible that Facebook is infected..
But hey! now it seems to have stopped blocking on Facebook.
