Avast antivirus

Not sure where to post this....
Avast for 2 days now is blocking Calibre from downloading the Ars Technica recipe content. Message is that the site is infected with JS:Includer-BHZ (Its a trojan.) Nothing Calibre can do, and I've reported a false positive.
Just FYI...

In other words you can read it without warnings by going to that link but you can't download it via Calibre...
And, I am pretty darn sure it's OK because Malwarebytes Antimalware detects no infection on my pc after both Calibre and directly visiting that link...
