HTTPS analysis failure of avast free 19.1.2360 (avast error)
« on: February 06, 2019, 04:27:26 AM »
Today testing the eicar before it worked the analysis of both https and http

In internet explorer (32 and 64 bit)

http://2016.eicar.org/download/eicar.com (avast alert)

https://secure.eicar.org/eicar.com (avast alert)

Which means that the https analysis works.

But in Firefox 65.0 64bit
http://2016.eicar.org/download/eicar.com (avast alert)

https://secure.eicar.org/eicar.com (no avast alert)

QUESTION WHY AVAST DOES NOT ANALYZE HTTPS TRAFFIC IN FIREFOX AND IF IN INTERNET EXPLORER.

TESTED THAT IT PASSES THE SAME ON 2 EQUIPMENTS WITH AVAST FREE 19.1.2360 WITH WINDOWS 7 PROFESSIONAL OF 64 BITS, THIS PORTABLE AND THE DESKTOP.

AVAST ANALYZES INTERNET EXPLORER (32 AND 64 BITS) HTTP AND HTTPS GIVING ALERT IN THE 2 CASES

BUT IN FIREFOX 65.0 OF 64BITS IN HTTPS AVAST NO ALERT OF THE EICAR. IN HTTPS FIREFOX ALLOWS ME TO DOWNLOAD EICAR, THAT IS WHEN YOU DETECT IT WHEN YOU ARE IN THE HDD BUT YOU SHOULD DETECT IT BEFORE HOW IT WORKED ABOVE.

TO WHOM MORE IT HAPPENS THAT AVAST DOES NOT ANALYZE HTTPS TRAFFIC IN FIREFOX 65.0 OF 64 BITS.

Sorry if it is not well translated but is with the Google translator.

It seems Avast made a change such that HTTPS will not be scanned through Firefox 65 until the incompatibility between the two programs is resolved.

Take a look here at the Mozilla bug: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1523701#c18

Hi Asyn,

Since, I never using Firefox and facing the same problem with avast for https analysis.

We are working to make it available on Firefox again. Some partial fixes are already in latest beta.
