Malware? HttpServer_Bootstrap-Example triggers URL:Mal warning in Avast

HttpServer_Bootstrap-Example downloads serveral files from:

http://simple.anakod.ru/templates/index.html" http://simple.anakod.ru/templates/bootstrap.css.gz http://simple.anakod.ru/templates/jquery.js.gz

When I try to download them a URL:Mal is triggered in Avast. Its probably a false alert - but then again, warnings about maleware in example code of an IOT-Framework shouldn't be ignored I guess :)

And its a problem indeed because I can't download the above files without disabling avast.

I couldn't figure out what URL:Mal actually means. Maybe its because it is a dangerous looking russian url? :)

    I can't see what's there because I don't have Avast account :D

    Wow that was quick great thanks. My macbook backlight just failed and I'm back to windows and I can't confirm it now. But I guess I can sleep soundly tonight then :)

    anakod is the username of the original creator of this framework. Those files are hosted on his website. It is just an example you can use another website of course :)

    Thank you I have seen that Anakod is a main contributor. But still that doesn't explain the malware warning. I mean, in theory his server could be hacked without him knowing it for example. Like I said, I know it is probably a false alert. I just wanted to point it out.
