BBC News and edigitalsurvey.com
« on: May 20, 2015, 11:09:22 AM »
Hi,

I've been going to the BBC News website for years.  This morning, Avast free (which I've had installed for a long time) decided to warn me about a malicious link on every page I visited.  The URL points to edigitalsurvey.com.  Is anyone else seeing this?

Likewise.

www.virustotal.com has a detection ratio of 0/63 for edigitalsurvey.com so it appears that it is a false positive.


BBC News is one of the sites I keep open all the time so I'm hoping that it's quickly resolved.

Yep, I'm getting this too.
On top of the regular persistent irritating pop up messages trying to get you to purchase additional Avast products, I'm really regretting signing up for Avast for 2 years!  (The paid for versions really really should not have these pop ups in them.)

Is it absolutely safe to report this as a false positive?

Hi,
Yep, this was a false positive and was fixed already. Sorry for the inconvenience :-)!
