    When I tried to log into my mainstreetaffiliates account, the window was automatically closed by my Avast software with the following message.

    Threat secured
    We've safely aborted connection on mainstreetaffiliates.com because it was infected with HTML:ChaseBank-A [Phish].

    I used to use Avast, but after way too many false positives, and worse, it failed to identify an actual infection, I switched back to AVG pro.

    Just checked out mainstreetaffiliates.com, and it didn't trigger anything!

    I've just accessed the site and didn't receive any warnings. All is well now.

    I got the same message on the same day by AVG instead of Avast.
    I turned it off because lately AVG consider infected or not secure even one of my online banking accounts.
    I too think that was a false positive.
