From what i was told, avast! will ALWAYS use this product model, so Home Edition for non commercial personal usage and Pro for everything else.

Hi guys,

for adventurous types I have an early code drop of a new functionality from avast 5 - an avast process execution prevention module.

I'm glad to see that alwil is moving forward!

I'm curious: I just ordered my license for gdata's antivirenkit 2007 (avk) - will any of the new avast!5 technology be implemented in this or any version of the avk?

When can we expect avast! 5 to hit the shelves? (Figuratively speaking, of course)

Right now, the capabilities of the avast! engine in AVK is identical to the one in avast! itself (possibly with small variations due to different build versions). What happens in the future, it's hard to forecast, of course ;)
However, avast! engine in AVK is really just the scanning engine (unpackers + detection) - so I don't think these high-level features, such as protecting avast! processes, would be included there. AVK programmers handle this kind of things themselves (which means that AVK might already include it, don't know).

When can we expect avast! 5 to hit the shelves? (Figuratively speaking, of course)

Unknown yet, i.e. not very soon.

Do you mean using or not the AntiKill avast feature?
I mean that it should be upgraded.

Here is one more program. Avast! shows me that I've got a virus (Sign of "EICAR Test-NOT virus!!" has been found in "Program Files\Vanquish Media Inc\Win32v.com" file. AND Sign of "Win32:Orpheus [Wrm]" has been found in "Program Files\Vanquish Media Inc\Win32r_vanquish\bin\vanquish.exe" file.  ) after that avast! is closed by those viruses.

So is there a date for when Avast will be released ??
Has Avast found an AntiKill method ?
What is Avast's resolution on blocking normal ways to stop Avast ?

Thanks

1. No date has been given for avast version 5.

2. Did you read the first page ?

3. Download the antikill.zip and test it.

Hi guys,

for adventurous types I have an early code drop of a new functionality from avast 5 - an avast process execution prevention module. I'd be glad if you could test drive it on your machine (it seems to be pretty stable) and maybe even play a bit with it - i.e. use all the tricks in your arsenal and try to overcome the protection (i.e. manage to kill the avast process).

You can download the tiny package from here:

Thanks for the Reply
Actually I mean an newewer version of the AntiKill feature because as I pointed out there was a bug in the code.

I guess we will have to await a response from Vlk, or one of the Alwil team to see if the antikill trial zip will be repeated if any bugs ironed out. Or whether we will have to wait for version 5 beta ;D whenever that is.

Interesting, current v.4.7.925 beta is the last before v.5   ;D ;D or will we see avast v.4.8 in the future? ;D ;D ;D ;D

Personally I think we will continue to see small incremental updates before version 5.

It seems Aliwl is being  hush-hush like Apple about product releases  ;D
