Yes, it is related, will be fixed as said above.

Nothing like False positive to bring new posters to see this wonderful site.

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

Joined these forums to post about this problem we are all having...thought I would look around first. Now I don't need to complain as you folks are aware and the fix is coming...thanks.

Just wanted to say that I'm getting the same messages on a Dutch forum I've been frequenting for the last few months without any issues.

The messages are "JS:ScriptIP-inf [Trj]" "HTML:Script-inf" and "HTML:Iframe-inf". Can I conclude that those are also false positives?

I'm getting the same popup on all Flickr pages. I assume this is related. The "problem" site is ad.yieldmanager.com

Oh, its the same for me.
Its on all yahoo's pages: Flickr, Answers, Mail and everything..

Is it a false positive or ..??
I'm again worried with avast.
I already had a great disaster during the previous false positive problem.

Thanks for avast for solving it soon :D

Update has just been released, mine updated itself...if you haven't, update manually.
Confirmed, it seems this update fixes the alerts  :)

Hi,
 im not, im chuffed to bits with this  great free software. I would rather  they find false positives and fix them than not find viruses and we all get infected :).

Many thanks to Avast :)
