Avast firewall is screwing up the Grapevine

If you use Avast for internet security, they are causing erroneous messages and blocking the Grapevine, mostly through the emails that go out at 3 pm every day.

We haven't done anything on our end. It's all something Avast did on their end. I don't know how to solve the problem, other than double check to see if you have more than one firewall or protector running.

Here are people having the same problem, when there is no problem:

Of course if you are having the problem, you probably didn't read any of this. But maybe you can mention it to a friend or two if they have been having problems.

Firewalls are tricky to use since some require the user to interact with the firewall to approve permission or deny permission to and from a web site. If you browse to a trusted site and then get a message from the firewall to verify whether to allow access then make sure you approve access, otherwise if you do not trust the site then deny access. If you make the wrong determination then your firewall may/will remember the wrong determination and continue to give the wrong access or denial which will make browsing the internet frustrating. There are other firewalls than Avast that users can try, Zonealarm is a good one. Avast is originally an antivirus company, just because the Antivirus is bundled with a firewall it does not mean it is going to answer your firewall problems.

I use Avast and have been getting this warning for the past week. Here's Avast's message to me which says it's a Javas Script infection. This is not coming from Google.

One of the ad providers on your page may be transmitting malicious content or perhaps they were flagged by Avast for doing so at some point (not necessarily on your site).

A new Java update was released a coupe days ago. I wonder if it might take care of your issue? Go to java.com
