.cm is the country code domain for cameroon. company probably offshored and parked the domain there for cheapness and tax considerations. can you manually configure your av to bypass/ignore or allow the script?
it may be recognising the script as hostile.

Nope. Not having problems with ATS at all. Every time some one has that I have seen, it has always been a problem on the user side, for what that is worth.

I started getting it this morning, as well. On every page load. Seems to have stopped now.

I just logged back and all is fine now.

Thank you, good people, for your feedback.

Yeah, today a little while ago. Something was attacking mine. What? I haven't a clue, I'm pretty clueless in regards to that kind of thing. Got pop ups from my Norton saying mine was under attack but apprently it blocked them. Is there something else I should do? I'm assuming all is well.

No virus alerts, but I keep getting blank white pages. Never had that before.

I just got hit by something while loading a thread page....First time that has happened. Avast took care of it, but Mods be aware, I think it's one of the Ads that is causing the trouble.

My antivirus went off as well....

Now the pages are loading a little off to the left. And that`s after my antivirus blocked whatever it was, and I restarted my computer.

I didn`t save what the alert said, just went straight to restart mode.

I`ve run a scan on my computer, and it comes up clean.

The only thing I got about an hour ago was from Firefox stating that it was unable to run some sort script thingy on one page.

Similar thing happened to me just now, Avast picked up a Trojan Horse and blocked it. Maybe a false positive, I don't know for sure.

Also what I`m thinking.

Just recently, I also got a popup that said that it couldn't read the script on the page... or something along those lines...

At least now, my antivirus is back to normal...

Affirmative here too.

Avast is over-reacting to ATS, first time for me ever. Strange.

No... Nothing at all.
I guess you use windows.

If i could try and convert you to Linux, your problems would stop.
No viruses at least 99.99% , I have used Linux for years and never had a virus, and i have no antivirus
or need for it.

Distros I would consider for the newbie

PCLinuxOS
Kubuntu
Linux Mint
Ubuntu

Just sayin

These are just harmless tracking cookies anyway.. nothing to worry about.

Linux rocks.

It's not always harmless cookies. I've gotten a few alerts while on ats. One time I wasn't paying attention, let it through the firewall, and it was one of those fake antivirus worms. It blocked almost any attempt i made to open a program without it's crap popping up. It was a pain to get rid of, had to go in and manually delete some registry entries.

I figured it came from one of the ads.

Trojan alert here, from Avast, first time today.
Someone on ATS should do something about this.

Son, I got that too, today. I am having problems with ATS this afternoon right now. It's all disjointed. If thats the right word. Like, everything you click on to, is bleeding into everything else. It's making my eyes cross.
