Virus alert on AO

My anti virus sw (Avast) has started to warn about links on AO.
Maybe you should have a look at it? This is the link that is flagged as a malware site:

I also get the same alert from my anti virus sw.

Looks like the VW guys have the same problem, http://www.volkszone.com/VZi/showthread.php?p=12460538

When you get that link to open it's a 1x1 pixel.
Do you have any other av programs or blockers?
Can you post a screenshot of the alert and the page you're on?

My anti virus is blocking the link and I will not open it when it seems that it links to a download of Nuclear exploit kit.

Nuclear exploit kit exploits the Microsoft Internet Explorer and the Oracle Java, after successfully exploiting a vulnerability it drops Trojan.Ascesso.A.
Trojan.Ascesso.A is known for sending spam emails and downloading other files from a remote location.

I get the same alert message as redtop 68.

I don't, but running FF with Ghostery and NoScript so probably blocking it without trying... I do see the Datalogix tracker mentioned in the other thread though. And I'm not prepared to test on this machine clicking a link or removing my protection lol.

The warning should be gone now.

Can you please confirm at your end?

Thanks

It looks like that I'm free from the anti virus alerts now when I visiting AO.
