Please answer the following questions so that we can process your bug report, otherwise, we may have to ignore it.
Also, please put your name, or a screen name, and your email above so that we can contact you if needed.
If you don't want your report to be made public, check that box, too.

Can you provide detailed steps on how to reproduce the problem?

  1. I went to the official youtube website
  2. Adblock displays a pop up saying that it has blocked a malware download from the site

What should happen when you do the above steps
The webpage should load properly. I thought youtube was a reputable website and had no malware?

What actually happened?
Adblock Malware protection blocked a reputable site from "malware".

Do you have any other comments? If you can, can you please attach a screenshot of the bug?
I uploaded a screenshot in this post.

If unchecking all filter lists fixes the problem, which one filterlist must you check to cause the problem again after another restart?

    Hi Jonathan,

    Thanks for your report! An issue with the Malware Protection filter list caused YouTube to flake out today.

    The folks who maintain the list quickly corrected the problem and released an update. To get it, just refresh your filter lists:

    1. Click the AdBlock button and select Options.
    2. On the FILTER LISTS tab, click update now.

    If this doesn't help, please let us know! Just reply to this email to reopen the discussion.
