Threat detected / Connection was reset
« on: November 01, 2016, 05:34:00 PM »
This site is relaunching with brand new, fresh code from the ground up. I am receiving a threat detection pop-up whenever I try to access the main page & then getting the "connection was reset" error on Firefox & am unable to even see the page after that. I tested the site on various online malware scanners with zero results. Guessing it's a false positive. I am also not receiving the same error on mobile devices that also use Avast.

This is the website: www.indievisionmusic.com

Threat detection image included.

Please advise.

Precisely what Jefferson says, the first 4 lines of code in the printscreen it the (correct) cause of detection.
