Avast flashed me with this, thought it was kinda funny !!

 

===========================

 

avast! saved your computer from crashing
You just dodged a bullet

You may be wondering how you ended up with a virus, especially if you were visiting a ‘normal’ site. The latest research from the avast! Virus Lab shows that more than 80% of malware (viruses, spyware, and the like) spreads through legitimate websites, with only 1% coming from suspicious or ‘dodgy’ sites.

Good thing avast! had your back.

No i am not updating to the Paid version !!

 

Besides It is just an advertisement site and you will see cookies from it too. It is not malware. Many advertisements use popups. Popup type windows are not necessarily bad just because a popup blocker blocks them.

URL:Mal virus is a generic detection for malicious URL or web page. The detection of URL:Mal covers web site that is infected with virus, Trojan, and other types of malware. The same will also pop-up if a harmful Java Script file is spotted on the web site.

This detection by Avast Antivirus that recognizes risky web site warns computer user in advance. It impedes the malware from infecting the computer. Thus, URL:Mal represents the dangerous web address and not the type of virus that exists on that location.

 

 

Generally when you get this in a cached file as you have it means that after you visited the site (it was safe at the time of visit) the site itself has been hacked or one of its ad servers has. IT does not mean that your computer is infected.
