Avast's "security" product is (again) blocking access to Maker Forums, claiming that it is "infected" by "URL:Phishing"

If you use Avast, this post from their forum says how to complain to them about their failure to validate their information:

· · Web · 1 · 1 · 0

They claim to have removed the false record from their database but that it can take up to 24 hours to clear.

If it takes 24 hours for these records to clear, does that mean that Avast doesn't do anything to protect you for up to 24 hours after a critical real vulnerability is entered into their system?

I'm glad that I don't experience this directly. But I don't know why people with a choice put up with it.
