As far as I am aware, Iran has a history of restricting certain internet activity and web access.
It may or may not be some of the problem you are facing.

I see no reason why Avast would be restricted, but then again, if your country is actively involved
in restricting web access, it could be part of the problem.

Is your access overall affected, or is it just inability to access Avast?

All my best!
Jim

avast does not block it's own update servers and do not offer redirection of specific IP. Maybe "someone" in your country is doing that.

Hi soroush,

Very, very unfortunate situation here.  Zulu'd link you provided, and it appears a known service provider (link above) you use is infected with malware!

Here:  http://zulu.zscaler.com/submission/show/a8364b97669b64a236ef5c2ba04dc013-1338061294 (http://zulu.zscaler.com/submission/show/a8364b97669b64a236ef5c2ba04dc013-1338061294)

If it's the same as with AVG, then it's intentional (and I guess most other AV companies will follow suit sooner or later), and you are out of luck. If you have a paid version, ask for a refund.

Nope, MajorGeeks (and any other official download server) do NOT host update packages, they just link to avast.com. Look at the link in MajorGeeks, it says "Download @ author's site" and not "Download @ MajorGeeks".

As mentioned in other topics already, there are a number of AVs having to apply the embargo, presumably dependant of where their update servers are located.

So I guess you are going to bump into this in other areas as it looks like more companies are being forced to apply the embargo as mentioned in chocholo's post.

Of course you could try using an anonymous proxy.

It isn't avast boycotting Iran, but legally having to comply with "policies and regulations" that are applicable to AVAST Software a.s." as outlined above by chocholo.

I would imagine this is the last thing that avast wants to get involved in, politics. But it has to comply with the laws that govern the company.

Most probably the demands of these countries would infringe copyrighted material and antivirus technology.
The country seems to be demanding "too" much of the companies.

avast is not your enemy, they are just following the rules and respecting their country (and Europa Union) law.
By setting such limitation, avast will use a major number of its users and its not what it want, but they have respect the rules.

"Iran will be banned from the purchase of antivirus systems, a kind of technological embargo.........The international sanctions will stop the Government of Teheran to from obtaining commercial anti-virus software, according to a senior Iranian intelligence official."

http://www.infosecisland.com/blogview/20404-Antivirus-Ban-for-Iran-A-Controversial-Penalty.html

like bob3160 stated regarding EU law in addition to the new ban by the Iranian government.  Regardless of the circumstances, it is impossible for Avast to do business in Iran.   

If i was avast I would offer partial refunds based on how much is left on the subscription for Iranian users to smooth some feathers.  However, those sanctions might make those refund transactions impossible so it a lose lose situation.

I'm well aware of that. Any company from this country (US) also has the same trade restrictions.
Actually, any Company that wants to do business with any Country that is a part of this treaty needs to abide by these rules or,
no longer be able to do business within any of the Countries that are part of this embargo.

IMHO, this can certainly backfire. Since this, in essence, prevents any one in Iran and the other countries in this ban
from updating their AV, anything coming to us from someone in one of these countries could be spreading any number
of infections. This could include old infections for which our modern AV's may no longer protect us.
Maybe some day long after I'm gone, people will learn that these types of tactics usually hurt the average person.
Certainly not what the intent is of this not so well thought out maneuver.
There are other ways to reach this goal but those that make the decisions still need to learn how to be part of real live.
Not the type of make believe world that they live in.  :'(

Does it seem strange to anyone that this happens around the same time that The Flame is starting to spread?

I'm not saying that Avast had anything to do with this, But that who ever created flame knew when these restrictions were going to take effect.
Title: Re: iran ip addresses restricted by avast ?
Post by: mchain on May 30, 2012, 10:31:57 PM
@ DavidR, bob3160, Marc57,

What is the embargo? 

As for the Flame worm, (or virus) malware creators are targeting only countries such as Iran, etc.  It is said it is likely to be a nation/state(s) behind it, with the authors supported and funded by them, and is said to be the most complex/advanced malware specimen ever discovered.  It is possible this malware is connected somehow with the embargo, so it would, of course, then be directed at the targeted nation/states, as it now appears to be.

As bob3160 says, this can backfire, but this also can be a part of a cyberwar campaign to ultimately cause an uprising of the citizens of a country.  This may be being done despite the personal loss, and sacrifices, these citizens will have to make one way or another, if they choose to do this; the loss can/will be tragic, and that, furthermore, dire unforeseen consequences can/will occur due to this strategic decision.

Avast is being used, then, to apply this sort of international pressure, unfortunately.  It is tragic, in a way, that a smaller player in the world arena cannot say no to this scenario, as they, like everyone else, has to comply with the rules in place, whether they agree with them or not.

The common user of Avast! is the biggest loser here.  I do not know if this applies, but if Avast! chose to ignore the embargo, would they effectively be put out of business? 

If that were to happen, then the loss would be enormous.  :(

Title: Re: iran ip addresses restricted by avast ?
Post by: DavidR on May 30, 2012, 11:01:13 PM
I don't know the full information on the embargo, other than there are a number of countries that are being prevented from access to all sorts of things.

This is presumably access to technology, I don't know the exact law, which companies have to follow or they could be heavily penalised. As has been said this is the last thing avast want to get involved in, but they have to comply with the policies and regulations as chocholo outlined in his post/s.

Suffice to say you only have to read your US Press/News to see what happens to people/companies breaking embargoes (whatever they might be), very hefty punishments.

@mchain,
I highly doubt that any of us are happy about the situation including Avast.
We are here because we enjoy helping others and in this case there isn't anything any of us can do unless we contact our politicians and try to
convince them that there has to be another way to reach their goals besides hurting so many innocent people.
From my end, that's all I can do. All of us need to decide what we are comfortable in doing and pursuing.


Sorry to those in the countries involved but I've done all I can do.
Remember, there are always three sides to every story.
My side, Your side and then somewhere in the middle the truth is usually found.
Hopefully some politicians are listening.  ;)

As I said before avast is not alone:
It's years that Symantec does not allow download it's setup and offline-updater from Iran (and other Embargoed counties) and even their customer support does not answer queries from Iran (but their online/live update is not blocked)
McAfee does not allow download and update their product.
AVG has blocked Iran.
PC Tools (even before Symantec) had Iran blocked, from download or update.
LAVASOFT has some limitation against Iran.
Hundred of WebSites that use Google Engine does not work in Iran (e.g. VirusTotal, DownForEveryoneOrJustMe.com etc), so many Google Service is blocked too, every kind of payments (Visa, PayPal etc) is blocked and much more...
So many non-security softwares does not work in Iran too, e.g. Skype does not work.

and now avast joined the club too, not a surprise...
But who care? Because of Iran censorship almost every Iranian Internet user has kind of proxy for himself and it bypass all of above story, even bypass avast limitation for Iranian IP addresses.

1 thing i dont understand...if u are a avast disliker why should u come here and get your finger burnt  ???

we,iranians criticise their pollicy ... no matter we like their product or not
offcourse there is no surprise you do not understand
when you know nothing and have nothing to say,stay calm and stop flattering

The best way to not get your own fingers burnt and to avoid further confrontation is to not reply to a comment that needs no reply.

you dont reply because you have nothing to say
your just obeying,you re blindly following the rules written by others,you have no idea of your own

1. I have a lot to say but am smart enough not to say it.  Something you still need to learn.
2. Since I'm a user of avast, I don't speak for Avast.
3. I don't blindly follow anything and have already expressed a critical response to the government regulation
    that's behind this action imposed on the security industry.
    (You would have had to read all of my replies to notice that not just the ones you choose to read)

Offcourse there are lots of things I have to learn,but What I ve already learnt is that A wise man never says "I m smart....."
the man who thinks he knows a lot usually knows little
take this advice,let your hallucinations go away  8)

It is appreciated if you have said something in favor of innocent victims of this restriction but the sentence I had marked was not that kind

سلام به همه دوست داران دیروز و امروز آواست

من اواستو خیلی خیلی قبول داشتم و دارم...

اما این کار اواست که آی پی ایرانو ببنده غیر قابل قبول هست و نیازی نیست  که بگید این مورد از داخل ایرانه چون بچه که نیستیم که نفهمیم معنی بوک کردن آی پی چیه!!!

آیا نرم افزار آواست به برنامه هسته ای  ایران کمک میکرده ؟ واقعا خنده داره !!!
یا به دلیل اینکه ایرانی ها توستن یه انتی ویروس قوی بسازن  دست پیش گرفته؟ بازم خنده داره!!!!

آواست به قول خودش از قانون اروپا داره پیروی میکنه و مثل اینکه از خودش اراده ای نداره که تصمیم بگیره ...که باعث تاسفه برای مردم اروپا که ملت های بزرگی هستن اما همیشه باید پاسخ گوی یک اقلیت خاص باشن و هزینه های اونارو بردوش بکشن...مردم ایران خیلی وقته با تحریم خو گرفتن و همیشه کساییو که با هاشون بودن را  به خاطر می سپارن و کسایی که علیه شون بودنو جور دیگه ای بخاطر می سپارن...

 ما خیلی وقته تحریم شدیم پس اصلا نگران این نیستیم منتها برامون مهمه دلیلشو بدونیم از اون مهمتر طرفی که روبه روی ما هست روبشناسیم  ...

ما همانطور که خیلی راحت تحریم میشیم ...اما راحتر از اون تحریما را دور میزنیم...

وقتی که من یک لایسنس یوزر اواست بوده باشم این کارشو دزدی میدونم چرا که پولو گرفته اما خدماتشو بهم نداده آیا توی اروپا این کار جرم نیست ؟؟؟ توی  ایران که جرم شناخته میشه  اگر به قانون پایبند هستید پس باید پاسخ گوباشید یا هزینه رو برگردونید...

چون فعلا چاره ای جز استفاده از آواست ندارم و دیگر آنتی ویروسا رو هم قبول ندارم پس هنوز مشتریتتون هستمو به طریقی  یا افلاینن یا مستقیم  آپدیتاتونو  میگیرم
اینم عکس که  برای دلیل:

(http://img4up.com/up2/84681655703511377258.jpg)

کاربرای آواست هم می تونن تا زمانی که آوست نظرش عوض بشه یا زمان  تولید انبوه آنتی ویروس دانشگاه شیراز برسه   ن توی گوگل  عباراتی شبیه اینو سرچ کنن و به راحتی تحریمو دور بزنن::

روش آپدیت آواست بعد از تحریم ایران
یا
آپدیت آواست آفلاین

When Avast Iran sanctions
Ahmadinejad did not boycott!
President Ahmadinejad is not the Avast user
But ordinary people in Iran are Avast user
Iranian people have nothing to do with nuclear bomb
Iranian people are peaceful
And like all people around the world
But you just showed us that the Iranians are the enemy! :-\

ANYWAY...

I've got a solution for updating avast!, online. Here's the most recent method:

You'll need the anti-censorship software called Freegate. U can download it from the link below:

https://mega.co.nz/#!a8gzWRAL!IvsdvEz31uC79fpO1YFlUwYmxT9T9bvNvKjX-9ZsXuQ

After downloading Freegate, execute it and wait to connect to servers. Once it connected on Freegate window, the active tab will go to "Status". On this tab it shows you proxy setting for other applications which aren't proxified!

So, open avast! user interface-> Go to Settings-> Open "Updates" menu-> open "Proxy Settings" part and select this option: "Specify proxy server"
Type: HTTP
Address: 127.0.0.1      Port: 8580
and
Authentication Type: No Authentication

(http://s9.postimg.org/5jclzu8i7/Untitled.jpg)
DONE!

I'll keep you informed for any new methods.

I ve heard good news:
http://www.techhive.com/article/2047526/google-apple-remove-some-restrictions-on-technology-to-iran.html

These American companies have opened their service to Iranian Home users,let's hope other vendors will folow their pollicy.
