    All of a sudden, anything I load from this site gets a popup from Avast saying

    MALICIOUS URL BLOCKED

    uac.advertising.com/wrapper/acsUAC.js


    I don't know if one of your ad servers has been compromised or if they're just trying to panic me into buying a deluxe package from them.


    Firefox 3.6 on XP if it matters.

    Wait a day, update avast, and try again.

    From Avast: "This is false positive, fixed in internal version. We'll push it out ASAP."

    Thanks for letting us know about this. We want to make sure our site isn't getting blocked with false positives :) If this ever happens again don't hesitate to let us know, especially if it isn't caught by the company making the software (like Avast did in this case)

    Happy to be of service.

    Now if only it were that easy to get rid of the Wow gold guy.
