reshark plugin for Firefox decodes the malicious Web.

Quote:
A computer security researcher has released a plugin for Firefox that provides a wealth of data on Web sites that may have been compromised with malicious code.

The plugin, called Fireshark, was released on Wednesday at the Black Hat conference. The open-source free tool is designed to address the shortcomings in other programs used to analyze malicious Web sites, said Stephan Chenette, a principal security researcher at Websense, which lets Chenette develop Fireshark in the course of his job.

Hackers often target legitimate Web sites with code that can either infect a machine with malicious software or redirect a user to a bad Web page.

I'm guessing it was a false positive, but when I attempted to install this plug-in, Avast got angry and deleted it as a suspected trojan.
