Avast Free--Advanced Issues
« on: February 27, 2020, 10:27:29 AM »
Hi there. I am really new here...did a scan and now I get these messages:
23 sensitive items are prime targets for attack ( it is just normal folders and files)
and...
You're vulnerable to fake websites. Hackers can hijack your DNSsettings to redirect you....

And then a button below Resolve All....now my question....if I click on resolve all....what will happen?

Thanx

Hi,

Folders and files can be subject to ransomware attacks.

"Resolve All"- In general, it will ask you to enable ransomware protection and real site (DNS hijacking protection) or Upgrade to the paid version.
