AVG gets avast's signatures but avast get avg's?
« on: March 24, 2017, 02:50:16 PM »
One question like AVG gets avast's signatures.
Is Avast also get the AVG's signatures.
why i am asking because Avast only gets avg's BB/IDP
otherhand AVG all detection via Avast's signatures also EVO-Gen.
Can you talk to the avast team about this.
I have not seen any avg detection on avast other then Avast BS. :)

Both Avast and AVG use the same VPS.

The signatures of both have been merged. (i.e Avast get AVG signatures and vice-versa).

I think he is on about malware naming conventions, there may be distinctions on what a detection of the same malware might give. You only need to look at virus total to see the mass of different names given to the same detection.

The only time there could be a screenshot would be if an avast user had a malware detection and it happened to be using an AVG malware name. Even then the user would have to have taken a screenshot (and subsequently post it).

This has been asked and answered on a number of occasions.

People don't like change if you introduced just one AV product immediately after avast purchased avg, you hack off both avast and avg users, who made their choice of AV.

We prefer to keep the brands separate for now. It's nothing unusual..See AEG/Electrolux, VW/Audi/Skoda/Seat etc..
