Yauba anonymous links give non-stop false positives?
« on: October 06, 2010, 06:18:25 AM »
Yauba is supposed to be a safe and privacy minded system, but avast keeps blocking the anonymous links.(which is the whole point of using Yauba to begin with)

Searching works with no problems, but clicking to visit a page anonymously, (lets say you search for google, and click visit anonymously), the page is blocked by the Network Shield. This happens with EVERY page one attempts to visit anonymously.

Avast's pop-up claims "MALICIOUS URL BLOCKED" "URL:Mal". No other scanner finds a problem. VirusTotal only shows Avast blocking this as "HTML:Script-inf".

Looks like a false positive, but I suppose Yauba could have a valid infection or is using a script known for bad things.  This needs to be looked into.
