avast.setup and tracker.prq.to
« on: November 20, 2005, 10:53:27 PM »
Why has my zone alarm got 170 attempts by avast.setup to open a connection to a bit torrent tracker ?

avast.setup tries to connect to avast servers (not torrent) to check for and download updates.

Is there a location for avast.setup as this file isn't a permanent file, only being created from the setup.ovr at the time of update, check the servers.def file it should list the URL addresses that it would connect to.

What is your firewall?

So there is a possibility that this isn't avast.setup, can you do a search for avast.setup, it shouldn't exist outside of actual update and in that case would be in the 'C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\Setup' folder, anywhere else and it is wrong.

and its still trying to connect to this torrent tracker, I can only think that maybe the address is being re-used or somthing ? but what I dont get is that avast is allowed and does update fine through the firewall but these keep showing up as being stopped, somhow the firewall knows these are not geniune IP's to connect to :|

Not at all sure why this should be happening, does make me think bad things tho when my AV is trying to connect to what seems to be a torrent tracking place for ripped of games and things.

Since the servers.def file only contains the urls of avast servers (not the IP address) then one would have to wonder how the questionable IP address might have been used by avast setup. 

There is just a possibility that a nasty piece of software has invaded your system and set up a redirect for one or more of those avast urls to send it to the questionable IP address.  You should scan your hosts file and make sure that no such redirections have been set up.  On an XP system you can find the hosts file in the C:\Windows\System32\DRIVERS\etc folder.

Why are you thinking your antivirus is trying to connect anything related to torrent or games or anything else?
The list of update servers could be found in servers.def file in setup subdirectory under avast4 folder. There are the names, not IPs but you can check for the IPs yourself.

The problem is that this list could change (and actually is changed) quite frequently (servers are mostly added).

It makes me think that because when I do the DNS lookup of the IP avast is connecting to it belongs to ThePirateBay.org

% Information related to '83.140.65.0 - 83.140.65.255'

I will check my hosts to see if anything is in there

avast.setup does not exist on any of my drives
It's a temporary file that appears by the transformation of C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\Setup\setup.ovr

It makes me think that because when I do the DNS lookup of the IP avast is connecting to it belongs to ThePirateBay.org
Something strange as the avast servers are not related to the ThePirateBay.ORG

Can you check the contents of your HOSTS file?

I don't have the slightest clue why would setup connect to such a site.

Could you please inspect setup.log in setup directory if it also mentions the ip you've mentioned?

yea this really is an odd one nothing in there thats not working, now I did a test and told zone alarm to ask me what to do the next time avast.setup runs, it just did and it wanted to connect on port 53 to the torrent tracker again, I said no to the request and a few moments later avast spopped up with the red box an error has occurd while attempting to update, if I do not stop it connecting to that torrent address it seems to update fine :\ wierd huh ?

Very weird, you could as a temporary measure create a rule in ZA to block avast.setup access using port 53 or any other port other than port 80 (UDP/TCP protocols), which I think is used for updates. Perhaps Kubecj could confirm this.

Something very strange is going on, I certainly haven't seen anything like this since joining the forums and it would be nice to get to the bottom of it.

How would avast.setup be made to use port 53 to connect, when I think it uses port 80.

Just tried a manual update and port 80 is used.

This is the top bit of my setup.log
Maybe the bottom of it will be better...

Foxabilo, are you using Home version or the Trial one?

Heh, it seems that setup is trying normal servers on port 80, as seen in the log.
To me it looks like wrong ZA report? (but how can one trust his firewall if it's not able to display the correct ip??)

It occurs to me in reading the thread again that the access to this strange IP address was reported as a DNS lookup on port 53 (standard DNS lookup port).

So Foxabilo, can I suggest that, at a command prompt, you type ipconfig /all and make sure that the questionable IP address does not appear in your list of DNS servers.
