Avast Online security (Beta?)
« on: March 25, 2019, 08:07:40 AM »
Yesterday I somehow got to a site called getawesome6 (even though I thought I was connecting to www.shell.co.uk).

Anyhow a quick google revealed it to be malware related so as a precaution I restored my PC back to a drive image taken September 2018.

After the restore and letting Windows and Avast update back to latest versions I noticed that I appear to have 2 Versions of the Avast online security Chrome plugin.
 'Avast Online security' v18.4.159 - Enabled & 'Avast Online security (Beta)' v18.5.160 - Disabled.

I am just wondering if the Beta version was real Avast or fake. I have now removed it and a full scan shows clean.
Windows 8.1, i7 12GB RAM 500GB SSD, Avast Free
