I've been using Kaspersky for a couple of years now, Internet Security 2009 for about 12 months.
I haven't changed any settings, but all of a sudden this afternoon it has started blocking AdSense from all sites. Even worse than that, it is flagging any site displaying AdSense as a potential phising site.
Is anyone else running Kaspersky having similar problems, and is this likeky to be a setting in Kaspersky changed or a setting at AdSense?

Same problem on my sites - it would be appropriate if Kaspersky paid compensation for showing everyone's website as trying to steal passwords. This will have cost webmasters thousands of £ / $ and cost Google millions. It will also make a lot of people very nervious to visit any website that carries Adsense.

Strange, I have six systems using Zone Alarm Suite with Kaspersky and didn't see anything untowards and we were running them all day Sunday plus, amazingly, yesterday was the highest CTR of the month and my 4th highest earnings' day of November!

Trend Micro used to do this from time to time as well, although they never admitted it. Usually it was cleared up within an hour or two, but it was one of the (many) reasons I stopped using Trend Micro.
