    I recently tried to go to the Ashampoo site but McAfee's Site Advisor would not allow access. There was a warning that said-

    "Browser exploit:
    Breached browser security

    When we browsed this site, it made unauthorized changes to our test PC."

    Is this a false positive with SA? Have there been other security programs with similar warnings?

    McAfee defines an exploit as follows-
    "Exploits are rare but extremely dangerous security threats caused by a Web site "exploiting" a browser's security vulnerability. The exploit can cause the user's computer to receive programming code which can cause adware infections, keystroke spying, and other malicious actions which can leave a computer essentially unusable."
