Yahoo Groups file downloads giving security warning
« on: August 07, 2011, 06:16:45 AM »
Just starting sometime today, it seems if Avast is the antivirus program of choice, and you try to click on a file to download it (the same one done successfully yesterday with no issues) a warning goes off and it's a "not happening" scenario.  I'm thinking it is a false positive but hoping some body can look into it. It's not just one Yahoo Group, it seems to be all or at least several. I'd like to blame Yahoo, but....? Any thoughts?  ???
