That doesn't matter so much.
I disagree.
Why ??? ??? ???
Won't worth posting if every post of mine is contradicted. I will just say it's my personal opinion based in the CC technology.

Lets be honest, it's because you're being too defensive because you're "avast team". Users don't care about buzzwords and fancy promises. They want results. It's that simple.

When avast! will detect pretty much every malware you throw at it, then I'll be defensive, but until that happens, sorry. No.

Well I suggest you read my complete post and not quote in part, as it is completely out of context. The fact that avast hasn't seen it before doesn't mean other AVs haven't seen it and added it to their virus databases. Hence the results in the VT link.

What I have said is true and explains why avast, CC scan picked it up "it hadn't seen it before."

1. I quote in parts because I do not agree in that part.
2. I'm not in Avast defense. I was answering (and questioning) technically. If CC technology is also called zero-second detection, how tons of other AV that supposedly do not have this technology already detect that sample? And this is the meaning of my posted phrase there. In the answer, seems I'm a stupid or non-technical minded.
3. The only fact you're on defensive and questioning, does not mean we're (other Avast users and team) are biased.

Avast! team should change the blog post name:CyberCapture: Protection against zero-second attacks
CyberCapture is not detects zero-second attacks and give realtime results for now,it is missed some well known malwares.

1. well you only quoted part of a sentence, in isolation it is meaningless as the explanation is to do with why you see avast not detecting on VT, but that avast CC has detected it.

2. If you read my reply in the context of what I quoted from your post it should be obvious that I'm not defending or attacking anyone. Just trying to explain how this situation might occur.

3. As I said it isn't a defence of anything other than an explanation of others are detecting something avast doesn't. The fact being that the avast CC did detect it, something which can't be tested live on VT. Only after subsequent CC detections would avast possibly include a signature for that malware, then and only then would you see a detection on VT.

EDIT: Typo.

HEY Avast! team here is a feedback from Malwaretips:https://malwaretips.com/threads/avast-12-2-2276.61789/#post-527625 The Always block suspicious files from Cyber Capture doesn't work that well.

This is a small feedback after testing a few hours in Windows 7 (64Bit) using VirtualBox on Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS (64Bit)

Hello guys,
We have made a small change in the Cyber Capture flow. On the first Cyber Capture dialog, that informs the user about the fact, that the file is rare and need to be analyzed on the backend, we have removed the "Run anyway" button. We've received some complains from users and testers, that this is too dangerous, and in case it really is a virus may be a security risk for the user.

In the current version, the original "Run anyway" button is replaced with the "I trust this file" link, which still keeps the file inside Cyber Capture analysis, and also sends this users opinion back to our servers. It may be then taken into the account and make the analysis faster.

While be believe, this new workflow is more secure, we do understand that many of you are power users and want to be in charge. For this purpose we have added the new option into settings - it controls whether the "Run anyway" option is available or not.

Some of you have also suggested the file to be executed in Sandbox only - we are still working with this idea. I quite like it, but it has some technical issues as well - what should we do when the downloaded file is an installer, the installation may fail, or appear to succeed but things will not work as expected -- e.g. no integration with the system will ever be visible. This seems to be somewhat challenging when presented to less advanced users, but we are still working with this idea.

Hope this helps. Lukas.

RejZor, and sorry for not replying earlier, you've posted your first question in the middle of the night (11.26PM - 13.7 hrs ago), I was still awake and we had a chat about that with Petr Chytil, but my wife really hates when I type in bed, so I left the reply till the day light. Your other inquiry about that was 2.18 hrs ago, while I understand it is already some time, it took me a more than 10 minutes to type the reply - so in general I guess we could count that as bellow 2 hrs. Is that really that horrible?

Lukas.

So Clarify this one "Allow me to run Susp files" the paid users are using it in Sandbox but what about free users?
you say that "we are still working with this idea."Pls keep free users also in mind.They don't have Sandbox.Have a great day.
