Avast driver updater site flagged as Trojan
« on: November 12, 2019, 05:50:36 PM »
Good Day,
I wanted to install Avast Driver Updater (I have a 2 year licence) on my new laptop running the latest version of Windows 10. However, after clicking "Install Now", Malwarebytes Premium blocks the site, with the message "Website Blocked due to Trojan".

I will of course not install Driver Updater as long as I get this message. I also do not want to add it to the Malwarebytes Exclusion list until I know the Driver Updater site is safe and not infected.

Please keep me posted on any updates on this. Thank you.

Best Regards,

Ronny.
