Avast vulnerabilities reported

Recommended Posts

Thanks Hazel. Good thing I'm already on Avast 5 (well the latest Beta 2 build anyway).

From the OP link:

Vulnerability #2 is addressed in the upcoming avast v5.0 (due this November) but there are no plans to do anything about it in the current version (4.x branch)

 

Doesn't bother me at all.

You're welcome, and ditto.

I'll just make sure that none of the other users (=1) mess with it.

I'd like to know how that person found a vulnerability with Avast's self-defense module enabled, because it gives nothing but Access Denied prompts with it enabled, of course any file can be saved into the Avast directory which it will immediately start protecting too. Note that disabling Avast's self-defense is completely foolish.
