The OP...

There is a ad.yieldmanager script tag, that is causeing avast! to alert,

ad.yieldmanager has been added to the network shield recently, due to the fact that it is considered malicious:
http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/ad.yieldmanager.com
http://hosts-file.net/?s=ad.yieldmanager.com&x=24&y=10

@F5,

Probably the same thing

Happens to be FP, which will be fixed.

Hello guys,

this false positive will be corrected in new vps update in about 30 minutes. We are blocking ads from yieldmanager.com (by mistake because they were in our stats as distributor of Fake Antivirus websites).

Thank you for information you have provided.
Regards
