Reportthis to virus@avast.com Subject: false positive

I am not getting alerts with Avast 2014

This could be caused by an posted live link, you have to break the link with htxp or something like this.

Nevermind they fixed it. I reported it in an email and the alert is gone.

There are live links, thats enough for Avast to block Javascript malware like this.

Thats not an infection.
