Amazon.ca blocked by Browser Guard

Hello, I tried visiting Amazon.ca this morning and I get the message from Browser Guard:

Website blocked due to trojan
Website blocked: www.amazon.ca
Malwarebytes Browser Guard blocked this website because it may contain malware activity.
We strongly recommend you do not continue.

I am getting the same result from Chrome and Firefox where I have Browser Guard installed.  I have no problems visiting Amazon.com, and yesterday the .ca site was fine.

Any ideas what's going on, and does that mean Amazon.ca's site is compromised?

I just finished trying it out on my wife's laptop (running Windows as well) and I was able to load up Amazon.ca's website with both Chrome and Firefox.  Went to Amazon's Customer Service link and then Browser Guard kicked in and flagged the site as having a Trojan.  Not to long after it was flagged on Chrome as well.

If it was being reported as a Trojan, all Malwarebytes users would have been affected. Considering that I have read numerous reports of weirdness from Saturday, it sounds like something was happening for a brief period. All good now though!
