Kaspersky false positive tags Google Adsense as Trojan

Update should solve problem soon

Following an update, Kaspersky Antivirus today falsely identified Google Adsense as a malicious script.

Network admins and web publishers were faced with a flurry of complaints from users who believed legitimate sites were serving malware via Javascript.
