Avast detecting itself as malware??
« on: July 25, 2012, 10:53:47 PM »
So, i turn on my laptop today. Avast said it blocked a malicious URL. The URL was http://s.program.avast.com/api/?action    Isn't that a legit Avast site? Avast webshield said it can harm me? Please help me

It is not an official avast webpage as far I can see.
I'm not sure.

Anyway, seems clean https://www.virustotal.com/url/4285ffd1733db4a5f7cb0afa59d7e3e5abcec9575703712e182279c1b2e37ecb/analysis/1343257781/

Hello,
thanks for notice. It's fixed in last stream update (pkg1207250100000001.bin).
