We've noticed that avast blacklisted one of our shared servers IP address (http9). If you use avast and go visit a website hosted on this server, you're likely to get errors such as "connection reset".

this seems to be suspicious: "http://www.scumware.org/report/188.8.131.52"
* all websites listed on this page have been suspended or removed at least several weeks ago

We're encouraging our customers to let them know that they're not happy about the situation.

The IP has been unblocked, reportedly on Saturday.
