When opening my chrome got warning from AVAST about aborting connection to metamask.github.io! Image in attachment.

Metamask support sent to ask questions to Avast support! :D

Can anybody help, is it thing to worry about, or it is some glitch after update or something? Couldn't find any info in internet, only one similar case with no suggestions and no solution!

And what should I do, deep and boot scanning did not found anything! Afraid to use chrome and metamask on this device!

Thanks for any help and suggestions!

If you weren't actually trying to connect to the site, using chrome it is somewhat suspect.  Have you installed or updated any chrome browser add-ons recently ?
