Avast Business Antivirus 21.1
« on: March 10, 2021, 06:39:39 PM »
Hi,

Avast Business Antivirus version 21.1 has just been released, March 10, 2021.

Release Summary

This release contains new improvements and bug fixes to our Avast Business Antivirus client.

Avast Business Antivirus 21.1 will be available for new installations immediately. All existing devices with Avast Business Antivirus 20.10 or lower will start the automatic upgrade to 21.1 at a later time.

If you wish to upgrade your devices to 21.1 prior to the automatic upgrade, then you can create a new Task (Update device – Program update task) from your console.

A system reboot will be required to complete the installation. There will be no forced reboot unless you have set this in your device policy settings. Servers will never reboot regardless of your device policy settings.

Improvements

•   More informative threat alerts - If you get an alert, click ‘See details’ to see what type of threat it is (e.g., adware, ransomware, scam, etc.) and a brief description
•   Tidier threat alerts - If you ever run into multiple threats at once, you'll no longer be bombarded with one alert after another. Instead, we've combined these into a single alert according to the shield that detected them
•   Alert ID - Every threat alert now includes a unique ID in the bottom-left corner. If you ever share a screenshot with our support team, this ID will help them to identify your problem
•   Improved PUP detections


Resolved issues

•   Fixed rare crash of bccavsvc service
•   Fixed issues with antispam engine
•   Patched Sandbox escape method (along with silent updates to previous AV versions)
•   Fixed some unwanted merging of old / default avast5.ini configuration
•   Fixed a rare bug that closed the UI when you changed the AV language
•   Silenced some background network scans in case they weren't required
•   Arranged for a more thorough uninstall (BugReport file is no longer left over)
•   Implemented Remote Access Shield conflict warnings in Passive Mode
•   Fixed an issue where detection dialogs were stuck behind the main UI when opened

That is correct, after reboot, the update process is completed and the build will change as it has for you.

Thanks,

George
