Avast thinks Hulu is a Malicious Site
I went to Hulu this afternoon to catch up on my HEROES. I didn’t get to see it on Monday, so I knew that I could go up there and watch the show without issue. Or COULD I?
Turns out Avast won’t have it. It is blocking the SWF from playing and saying “Malicious Code”. Tried a few times in Firefox and IE. Every show or movie I try to play comes up with the same thing.
Here’s the kicker – neither Avast nor the Event viewer is showing any more info. In fact, it’s not even logging the event!
Could this be a malicious code? Could it be that Avasts’ database is off? Maybe Hulu changed some stuff to thwart Boxee from going through the RSS backdoor?
Well, there is a way around that. I went to NBC.com and watched the episode. I hope it’s not a real issue on Hulu…
**Update – Avast has posted an update to allow the Hulu SWF through. There was still no Event log on what it blocked**
