From avast support team: still not detected.

From Avira support team: Thanks for the file! Detection is already added, I have to check if I can find more similar variants of this Bagle to write a generic. Bye, Stefan Kurtzhals

i have waited for more than 45 days to get that youtube,orkut and mozilla blocking worm detected..
and the root kit i sent around 2 weeks ack is still not dected.'
and the worst part is avast soes not send any kind of acknowlegment that i has included it in the database so we are forced to scan the file on  every updated. >:( >:(

It's becoming dangerous to be using just avast...

This is embarrassing, disappointing and not a good advert for avast in these public forums.

I do think that avast is a very good AV and I have no doubt that they are working hard to improve detections. But, this is very poor when people take the time to submit a virus/rootkit someone should be watching this the viruses and worms forum for this very thing overdue submissions.

I know this problem has existed for a long time, but I also know there is a tendency on the part of Alwil to prefer large, all encompassing program releases that make a big splash.  I hope the delay on the improved submission process, improved root kit detection etc is not simply out of a desire to make a grand statement when Version 5 (?) is finally ready.

It makes me sad to see the people who have given so much to such a great piece of software losing confidence in it.  And I'm especially saddened by the fact that I have no arguments against what they say.

Sorry to think different, I mean, for the last years the only I can say is that program updates follow a different rule and policy than the virus databases. I won't expect avast 5 improve submission process by itself. It could be a better program but the lack of updates is becoming dangerous for uses that have only avast...

What can we do? I get infected twice since I use only avast... :'(
A friend of mine had to format and reinstall... this is sad...

Just trying to be an optimist, I suppose.  Should I have said "formerly great ..." ?

This is a weakness that must be fixed if avast! is to maintain any effectiveness.

And ya' know, when someone speaks to me I at least acknowledge that words have been uttered, Alwil team ...

Hi mauserme,

Here is a free removal tool for it: http://www.kaspersky.com/removaltools?vtopen=146410248#open
But I realize that no av solution can close the vulnerability window completely, so that is why I have a resident scanner and non-resident scanners on my system to keep it as close ajar as I can.
But avast should also flag the malware that is reported most to infect, and their web forum report is one of the best and cheapest indicators, where and why avast users are getting infected. The e-card.exe was an ominous example where Avast was not a front-runner. Sometimes I think don't they read the important things that are posted here?

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

Unfortunately Alwil's lack of participation has only gotten worse over the past year.
They used to be a regular part of this forum that no longer seems the case.

Space alone does not make for a good support forum. It takes active participation.  :o

Thanks Polonus.  I just wish I could feel confident that a week, or a month, or even two months from now we would have our own detection.  Unfortunately my confidence is lacking.
