Just today Avast! is giving me problems ... probably for a good reason. EVERY TIME I go to Amazon.com the "Threat Secured" window pops up as pictured. How do I solve this ... as in NOT having this message continually popping up every few seconds while shopping on Amazon? I use Avast! on multiple devices (PCs, tablets, phones) and this is the ONLY device (Win 10 laptop) that I am getting this warning.

"Threat secured.  We've safely aborted connection with d2ef20sk9hi1u3.cloudfront.net because it was infected with URL:Blacklist"


Thank you ...

I'm using amazon.co.uk with no issues.

Just switched to amazon.com US site and had a rummage about in there and no problems and no avast alert.

Can you attach a screenshot of the Avast Alert window with the details option enabled.  It might provide a little more information.

I am having the same exact issues using the Amazon website in USA on chrome browser. First noticed it yesterday March 27. It's very annoying.

A screenshot of the Avast Alert window (with the details option selected) as requested of the Original Poster (OP) might help.

Do you have another browser that you could try and replicate/confirm the issue.
