Pruusst! LOL

False alarm. Avast identifies its own Signature updatefiles as a Virus!:)

Nothing to worry about. I think one Avast guy will answer soon.

"DAME" is an old(realy old) Virusconstructor(Mutation Engine if i remember correctly)

Same thing here.  Had to turn resident scanning off to get latest update file.  System scans clean after updating.

Very funny, indeed... ;D
Given the probability of such a phenomenon, I'd rather call it a miracle. :)

(maybe the End Of Days is coming...? ;D)

I second that - this DAME polymorphic definition is inside the avast! for about ten years and never caused a false alarm...

Anyway, we will release the new update in several minutes - with thes FA removed and with new Win32:Holar variant added - it seems to spread very fast in the near future!

It does not matter. Or just re-run virus database update, to be sure...

Shouldn't really be a problem.

Sorry for that,
