    FYI - I just got a notice that my Norton just blocked a HTTP Zombie Exploit Request attempt on my computer that originated from SMF. First time I have ever gotten anything like that from SMF, just wanted to let others know to keep an eye out!

    I have reported this to Huddler. Looks like a google Ad issue again.

    This was a issue with Norton and false positive on a file used by lots of sites. Huddler changed the name of the file to stop this action. Norton also is releasing a fix.
