    I believe this is one of Youtube's servers. I received the same warning from Avast! when I opened a Youtube URL.

    It's a server google uses to host data for YouTube. Don't worry about it though... Avast is just triggering to something that isn't there, it's what is known as a "false positive"... it happens sometimes. They already know about and are going to fix it soon.

    No, You Tube was NOT open when Avast kept alarming It was on different sites.... I can't pin point the connection.

    You must have been on YouTube at the time, because the same thing is happening to me. I like to listen to music via YouTube, but I'm assuming one of their servers has been hacked. I'm sure the people behind YouTube will have it sorted ASAP, but in the meantime, I'd stay off of YouTube.

    Happened to me too. We just relinquished control of the internet to a different country. We should be a little alarmed.

    It is not just YouTube it also shows up on other Google sites. There is a reference to it on GMail pages also.

    Every single time I click on a annotation or recommended video on youtube.
