False-Positive of Norton Security Toolbar

Today when I attempted to preview a pdf file uploaded in my Facebook group, Norton marked the preview link as malicious and reported it to be containing drive-by download. Otherwise, download worked as expected. I do not the file is containing any malware, as that should be flagged by Norton auto-protect or other real-time monitoring features.

I believe it is Norton that wrongly marked this link as malicious.
