    Since today, everytime I visit Facebook I get the following message from ESS

    What's goin' on?

    Can someone contact them to rectify this or is this a false positive?

    I came here today to report much the same, so +1 OP.

    Doesn't bother me so much, but less savvy customers might throw a goat. :)

    I'm facing the same thing, just came here to report this only to find I'm not the only one. I think it only started with the last Definition update.

    I started having the same issue late last night/early this morning. I'm running Chrome v14.0.835.163 beta-m on Win 7 Home Premium with all updates. I'm still getting these messages and it's blocking all off-site video and image link previews on Facebook.

    Hope mine goes away too or that they can get this sorted out.

    Hello,

    This was a false positive and a fix should already have gone out in a signature update. It you are still experience the false positive after updating to the latest signatures, please let me know.

    Regards,

    Aryeh Goretsky
