Hey, I thought I better let you see this. This pops up when i'm not logged in, on any webpage. May possibly scare of new users with Avast.
It's in dutch, but I gues it's pretty clear to see what's happening ^^

He appears to be using Google Chrome according to the screenshot. I've not heard of AdPeeps before, but there appears to be a CVE on it:
National Vulnerability Database (NVD) National Vulnerability Database (CVE-2009-4939) (nvd.nist.gov - CVE-2009-4939) And thus Avast's web script scanner warns of it (Warning as in precognition of unwanted behaviour, not detected malware)

All new problems require investigation, and so if errors are problems, try to learn as much as you can and report back.

Duh, I just saw the browser. :)

Adpeeps is the adserver we're using. It only serves ads for unregistered users (or members not logged in). I just logged out and tried it and it appears to be fine.

Just to be sure, I logged onto Google WebmasterTools to check:

Avast has a what seems revolutionary web script scanner that updates with exploit notices, so if you come across a previously exploited script it will prevent it from running. I would at least update the script if it is version 8.5d1, otherwise it is a false positive.

That could be correct, as it only occurs on 1 of my 2 computers, while both have Avast on it.
