    It happened to me last night, using Avast, on every CH page I visited.

      The file in question is part of a tool we use to ensure that the site is running normally- it's benign and does not contain malware. A number of sites using the same tool are reporting the same problem and have notified the makers of Avast; the false-positive will hopefully be addressed soon. Our apologies for any concern or inconvenience this may have caused, and thank you for your patience.
