Reddit - Address has been blocked

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Starting from tonight Eset has started to show a popup each time I open Reddit.com, be it the homepage, a sub topic, anywhere on the website.  I've been using Eset for years and this is the first time such a high profile website is being flagged.

I closed the web browser (Firefox) and reopened Reddit, the same notification appears, and does so after each time the page is refreshed.

I didn't want to whitelist Reddit as it is a website that holds user content. 

The notification can be seen in the screenshot below.

I'm using Eset smart security, up to date.

Browser - Firefox 66.0.2

Its annoying more than anything seeing a popup and hearing the notification sound each time I navigate a new page at Reddit.

Thanks in advance for your help.

An update.

It appears to have stopped showing a notification.  If your team works that fast then kudos to you guys.

It appears that it was an ad provider's address that was blocked. We didn't do anything in the mean time.

This has been happening to me since last year (i think). I thought it will be gone after weeks, but alas, at least 5 months now and my antivirus still gives me a pop-up like that every load of Reddit. :(
