Hello firemonkey,

Thank you for your OP and for your patience with us.

We had investigated the matter and, in short, this was an anti-malware false positive due to CloudFlare.

In simple terms, what your AVAST was picking up was the source code for the script that ran beneath the interstitial page we'd had.

You were only seeing it recently because CloudFlare modified their bot challenge script in early April this year.

We have checked Anthrogenica and can confirm that there are no malicious scripts running on any of the popular pages.

Per our recent announcement, CloudFlare has been stepped down, so you shouldn't be receiving any more false alerts from your software.

Hope that clarifies the matter and thanks again for raising this with us.

As we've addressed the problem, thread locked.
