Pano,
I've got that message too. Started today, didn't have it yesterday.

I have been using the "free" avast for over 10 years, I run it on every computer I own personally and build for others. Avast has recently begun advising an option to upgrade their standard Anti-Virus software. However,
I have NEVER had them try to "spoof" or "Scam" me into buying anything!
This is NOT a gimmick from Avast.
It is Malware. Start by running Malwarebytes.

Ron

I run AVG free version and got no warnings. No symptoms either.
I have Adblock Plus loaded. Do I need another?

It doesn't show up as a file using locate32 with nothing hidden. Also did a full Avast scan of it's reported location in the user folder with no discovery. It looks like it's redirecting to the Google cloud itself. They may have caught it already and broken whatever link was embedded.

So far Avast seems to be the only thing flagging it. I get no warnings and Malwarebytes found nothing.

Jason is working on the problem. Let's see what he finds. Malware is sneaky!

Don't know anything about Adblock, but it likely accomplishes about the same thing as the hosts file, hopefully with some additional features.

Agreed, It started just after this mornings auto definition update. It might be an Avast mistake.

It's not reported as a virus on the mac, just freezes the home page with a "stopped" warning on the Firefox bottom status bar. As I said, turning off Javascript stops it. Every other page seems fine.
