Getting notifications like this from Avast today:

I'm running OS X 10.11.6 beta (15G26a) and Vienna 3.1.5 :e14f77e:

I'm sure it's nothing dangerous, just slightly annoying.

It's getting more annoying, since it happens every 30 minutes when new posts are retrieved. Is there something I can do to get rid of this ?

Figure out which feed it is that's triggering the alert, then inform the site's owner that their server may have been hacked, or is serving attack ads.

Thank you Stern, found the culprit: a French site for Raspberry Pi fans: framboise314.fr
I have posted on their forum. Let's see.

I think Stern is likely to be correct. Hopefully they fix their website soon!
