This is a Kaspersky thing. A couple staff are having it happen, as well, intermittently.

I too was having a similar problem. After doing an update however it has been fixed.

It is due to the way Bartertown advertises the banners. If you notice, when the warning pops up, you won't have any banners on the page.

The server was given a full virus and malware scan and is clean. It is just something to do with Kaspersky not liking the banners or how they are populated.

Run the update and you should be fine. Or at least mine is fine.

I sent in a request to Kaspersky help and am waiting back for their "official" verdict. Until then there is not much you can do.

Hey
I figured it was a Kaspersky thing and not a Btown problem.
Ran the update and no warnings, for now. Thanks guys!
