The question is the avast! heuristic need to detect installers compressed with password.

This to improve the avast! heuristic.

How to awaken the developers of avast! for this ?

Hi Henrique - RJ,

Anyway thanks for reporting these detection flaws here.
I sincerely hope avast development team will come to meet your concerns,
the more because their Brazilian av-market position demands this.
Be asured the avast team always "reads over our shoulders" here,
and they are aware what lives inside our community.
They won't react here but you will see the results in due time,
of that I am certain,

Henrique, can you help me help the others?
Please, post the VT links of the files that are not being detected.
I'll try to get the attention of the virus lab.

@Polonus, thanks for bringing me to this post ;)

There are actually many vendors who dont detect it,not just avast.

Plus,scan links are like 4 days old,I guess avast must have caught up  :)
