virus chest bug!
« on: March 16, 2017, 03:30:19 PM »
hi ;)
according to  this page :D:
https://www.avast.com/faq.php?article=AVKB21#idt_20
The Virus Chest is a safe place in Avast Antivirus for storing potentially harmful files and completely isolating them from the rest of your operating system.

 Files inside the Virus Chest cannot be accessed or run by any outside processes, software applications, or viruses


but  u can try it and  add smth to virus chest  then u can  see that file still exist in that place and u can run it!

 when this page say:. Files inside the Virus Chest cannot be accessed or run by any outside processes, software applications, or viruses.

It is not a bug.
If you move a file (not detected) to chest, you only move a copy, orginal file will remaine at orginal location

If/when avast add detection for it, then it will be moved to chest when detected

This is confusion on your part, avast is talking about files 'moved' to the chest as a result of a detection and not 'added' to the chest by the user.

Files in the chest regardless of how they got there are:
1. encrypted.
2. renamed.
from outside of the virus chest you can't see the file name of the original file and couldn't run it even if you guessed as it is protected and encrypted. Also because it doesn't have a file type in the file in the chest windows would ask what program should open it. If you happened to guess correctly you would then have to get past the encryption.

You have to deal with the file outside of the chest when you add a copy to the chest, avast doesn't do anything with that.
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 24.4.6112 (build 24.4.9067.762) UI 1.0.803/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

look at this:
https://www.avast.com/faq.php?article=AVKB21#idt_20


 
that sample is safe( no virus)!
but avast talking about how to restore that file(safe file )when that file dont need restore ,its on his  place!!
 this Descriptions mean: when a safe file added to virus chest avast should block it and delete it from original place! (cuz avast talking about how to retore a safe file to original place)!!!when this rule dont work in ur avast antivrus

they wanted avast antivrus  block that file  and must do it(cuz avast talking about how restore a safe file)
 but in real world  ;D in ur pc cant do it and dont  work with this rule :))
