Whitelist software
« on: June 12, 2021, 11:21:56 AM »
Dear Avast forum,

We recently developed software and sign in with the SSL.com EV certificate and avast blocks us for any reason.
How can we whitelist from Avast or how can we contact Avast to check why they block us?
It's very complicated for our company to distribute our product to users.

If you want to check our software https://pepper.zone

Hi cbovino,

Thank you for posting and apologies for the delay in our response.

I've consulted with our team regarding your program.

The GUI of your program should have the following for us to consider it clean:
 - Installation logic
 - Indication of when mining is active

The .exe miner will remain detected, but you can suggest to your users to create an exclusion in their AV to prevent pop ups.

For reference, more info here: https://support.avast.com/en-eu/article/Threat-Lab-cryptomining-behavior-guideline/

If you'd like to discuss this further, I would suggest using our FP form as it is a more formal way of resolving FP issues - https://www.avast.com/false-positive-file-form.php

Kind regards,

Jakub

Yeah, that's a fair point. You can try submit an FP form with the VT link or the SHA in the description and it should go through. Our support team will then forward it to out Threat ops team.

Its just a more formal avenue for resolving the issue, also easier to keep track of for both parties.
