Default Antivirus 'Threat has been detected'

Once in a while when I click on a thread AVAST freaks out and I get a 'threat has been detected' warning. The 'threat' is from as.casalemedia.com (i think). Is this one of the ad vendors? Not sure if it's malicious adware or what.
Figured I'd put in a notification here.

I've had Chrome freak out a couple times when opening a thread. Did the whole scary red page deal with 'the site ahead contains malware'.

A little bizarre.

If there is a specific page where you get the error (thread, etc.) let us know and we can see if we can edit a post to remove it.

I feel like they pop up randomly over the site.

That said, it stopped when I turned adblocker back on. I guess it was one of the ads?

I can honestly say I've never gotten an add either via Chrome on my desktop or any mobile device (android/ios or mobile app). Must be lucky.
