I sent an e-mail message to Softpedia which read the same as my OP. I have just received the following reply:

I really think that the scanning tools is more than paranoic finding spyware in a java script used to display ads.

There is no spyware/adware in that script.

Please read here:

"This detection covers a javascript file referenced by web content developers to serve advertising to their visitors. Upon further analysis, it has been determined that the actions of this script do not currently meet our potentially unwanted program criteria. Detection will be removed in 4590 DAT release. "
