Kaspersky Detects Trojans in Google Adsense

I don’t know if it affects you or if my Anti-Virus is just acting up but every time I force refresh a page with Google Adsense with it Kaspersky (ver: 8.0.0.454) Internet Security detects a Trojan on the google javascript file. This even comes up on leading sites like lonelyplanet.com.

Here are the details.
To force refresh I mean using CTRL + F5. Then my antivirus gives this message.

On further checking of this report Kaspersky gives me the following actions and errors.
This is the actual error report on Kaspersky. 1/25/2010 8:01:18 PM- http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js Firefox Processing error: Trojan.JS.Redirector.ar

I get the same issue on IE6 with Kaspersky. On Internet Explorer I with Kaspersky installed I get an Additional Error. See Below.

I have no idea whats going on. After a basic search on Google I found this related post. But this is an old case and the ads are not being hijacked. From the report it seems it is the original Google Adsense Javascript file that is being detected as malicious.

If some of you have kaspersky could you please test this issue at your end and let me know. I will mean while report this to Google.

  1. @Nasif Not really dude. Kaspersky fixed it up real fast. Iam not sure why I like Kaspersky that much. May be because its costs less compared to AVG and Norton and is pretty mush as effective as them and does not kill your performance.
