@Alikhan,

I clicked on http://web-shield-test.avast.com/ and I got this pop-up.

Hi,

That's fine and is normal behaviour. It's just a test link to show Web Shield is working.

Thank you.  I was afraid I might have a virus.

@Alikhan,

I clicked on http://web-shield-test.avast.com/ and I got this pop-up.

That is what a test page for the web shield is all about - it tested the web shield - and you got the web shield alert.

It is like the Eicar test files, but this is for the web shield, to show what an alert would be like and that it is working.

"URL:Mal" means this url is somewhere blacklisted and is blocked before my browser connect this site?  Or it means on this site was found malware which was blocked? So no malware come to my PC? Is important block malware before is executed, not after.

I think that we are all aware what URL:Mal is all about and was also mentioned in Reply #8 above.

Yes this is not a place to share malicious links. :-P

But the links are from different domain. For me AVAST detects eicar and shows warning every time I try to download eicar test file from www.eicar.org.


You can test with http://web-shield-test.avast.com/ and http://test-url-blocker.avast.com/.

Once you turn off shields and start them again, you'll get pop up again.

Regarding your malware samples, don't post them here. However, are you sure they're not from the same domain? A prime example would be AMTSO. Since they're coming from same domain after detection of of the first file, you wouldn't get the popups... same for EICAR files.
