Are you all using avast?

Could it just be a false positive since that URL isn't assigned to an IP?

avast! saved your computer from crashing
You just dodged a bullet

You may be wondering how you ended up with a virus, especially if you were visiting a ‘normal’ site. The latest research from the avast! Virus Lab shows that more than 80% of malware (viruses, spyware, and the like) spreads through legitimate websites, with only 1% coming from suspicious or ‘dodgy’ sites.

Good thing avast! had your back.


The rest is about selling you various upgraded protection.

Dunno, what I know about how this stuff works you could fit on the head of a pin, but considering some of the other stuff that shows up on my daily scans of this and other anti-virus/mal-ware freeware that I do nothing about with no apparent problems suggests it's more about scaring folks like me into signing up for extended coverage.

No issues here with AVG, but I'd also recommend using a HOSTS file for some additional protection. There's a good one here- Blocking Unwanted Parasites with a Hosts File

Just download the zip, run the bat file and you're done. Many ads will no longer show at all and browsing can be much faster.
