Just logged onto Outlook (Hotmail) and Avast has flagged up that it's stopped a malicious script from running. Anybody else had this today and is it a possible false positive?

Seems like Avast only flags up a threat has been detected pop-up only when I log on via Firefox and not when using IE. Strange!

My message was different but it looks like the latest definition update has fixed it anyhow. Thanks for the info rdave :-)
