« on: December 24, 2018, 05:57:17 PM »
Working with it and updating it....

See: https://www.maltiverse.com/hostname/cdn-update.avastbrowser.com
Consider: https://www.maltiverse.com/ip/104.20.83.113

What is the reason for these alerts?
Consider: https://www.virustotal.com/#/url/018ab69a4c927d63a6c58d1af96ec2f8631737c14b47e6a3018e3261e347bf1a/detection
Nothing on the mini-installer: https://www.virustotal.com/#/file/3b1bd1c2cb9907c8f46cfba849a4f3b3ac615d4ab11468fadad01733285aa025/detection

Update site is susceptible to MiM attacks:
Insecure SSL/TLS versions available
HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) not enforced
HSTS header does not contain max-age
HSTS header does not contain includeSubDomains
HSTS header not prepared for preload list inclusion  (info credits go to UpGuard).

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!
