*False Alarm*: Malicious URL embedded in slickdeals google ads
Hey everyone. Starting around 12am, my avp has been going nuts on every slickdeals page, blocking a google ad that it saying is a phishing url.
I'm guessing 12am est is when the ads switched over. I would be careful clicking-through any links here until they get it sorted out.

Note to self: NEVER buy anymore Samsung products, no matter how good the price is.
Why slickdeals is awesome: I post a deal, it gets reposted 30 minutes later. I report the repost, and slickdeals warns me for "not doing my own work" when all the new poster did was post incomplete info and add links an hour after they blatantly stole my post. Obviously, this is the right way to encourage me to post more deals.
We'll look into it, but i am almost 100% sure this is a false positive. Thanks for reporting.
It is, it's been corrected now. Apparently kaspersky was flagging all google ads as malicious, but they've corrected it now. Seems something similar happened in 2010 at some point, but I guess it was between definition updates so I never encountered it. Feel free to delete this thread.
