so past couple days when i'm watching shows on Ex**us like vikings and game of thrones, clicking on the episodes and when it does the search for sources i get a malware alert from one of the links. it has only happened twice but was wondering anyone else has gotten these alerts... i'm using avast as my antivirus on my laptop and only seen it happened twice on Ex**us couple days ago

I've never gotten any messages on Ex**us. I use Avast also. If I were you I'd run Malwarebytes to see if you have something going on with your laptop. That would be my first step. Run it in safe mode if you find any malware. After that I'd reinstall Kodi, it will just give you a fresh version and your programs, settings etc will stay as is.

You dont have to be paranoid about this.
i heard that happened and with other people.
A lot of times is because of the ads the sites has.
In any case the avast alert says that block the connection with the website so you dont have to worry.
If the messages continue perhaps you would like to disable that website as a source at Ex**us or whatever addon could have it as a source.
Of course the last one is necessary only if you are using that other addons who has as a source the "bogus" website.
