    avg threat detected on cc question

    I just installed avg 8.5 and suddenly I am getting this alert every time I come here.

    I can't seem to find anything out about it, and am guessing it is flagging something by mistake, but anyone know what it is?

    It comes up under both firefox and IE. It wasn;t getting caught by avg 8.0.

    I've been getting an AVG threat when I come here to but it says something about a jsdownloader
    The other one said tacoca virus. Tacoda was last night the other today.

    sjean,

    That javascript file doesn't exist on CC's home page (I just checked), so it must be something else. What happens when you click show details?

    It just lists firefox.exe. If running under IE, it lists internet explorer.

    It is only happening when I come here. But, I only downloaded 8.5 this afternoon, so I haven;t been too many places yet.

    Searching for no details doesn;t show anything.

    I HAVE been having problems lately with lsass.exe .... not sure if it is a virus causing it or not, and backdoor-progdav that I THINK I got rid of.

    Omg, I have been getting EXACTLY the same thing sjean (my pop up is exactly the same).

    Only when I am on CC. It has happened about 3 or 4 times in the last few days. I do use AVG and the latest version of Firefox as well.

    I search for information in this threat on AVG itself, but drew blanks.

    sjean, try visiting YouTube and see if it happens when you watch a video.

    Firefox doesn't run ActiveX controls, so it's the safest bet.

    I keep getting that to but only here, not on YouTube or anywhere else. And I use Stumble all the time.

    Make the best out of today because yesterday is gone and tomorrow may never come. Nobody knows that better than those of us that have almost died from spinal cord injury.

    Got it and fixed it. Thanks for reporting it, sjean.
