Avast Virus Update History
« on: January 06, 2021, 06:00:46 PM »
Is it likely that Avast will once again maintain the Virus Update History page?  No update since Oct 10th, 2019.

https://www.avast.com/virus-update-history

Or is it re-located to somewhere else?

Thanks!

In all honesty I feel this history if of very limited use.

If you just look at the last entry on that list:
 HTML:PhishingWapp-H [Phish], ELF:Mirai-AOF [Trj], ELF:Mirai-AOG [Trj], MacOS:Agent-IG [PUP], HTML:PhishingAmz-CZ [Phish]

Just what information can be gleaned from that entry, miscellaneous/generic information ?

Given that there are multiple VPS Updates daily and streaming updates (aprox 3 min intervals), maintaining this list is also intensive.
