Avast deletes files and also block the git.exe
« on: August 13, 2021, 10:13:30 AM »
Hi, yesterday everything was ok. No problem. Today I open the project I am working on based on Laravel8 and found out that Avast deletes the server.php file which is necessary to run application. Anoyng... So I made an exception (I am pretty sure it exist yesterday). Ok. Exception is created so I tried to revert git delete but Avast block me the git.exe. Requires to create the exception. I have created the exception. But Avast still opens the block window in a cycle.

Throws an error: We have blocked git.exe because it was infected with IDP.Generic.

So I really dont know what to do now. Hope you will. Thanks.

It was not my question. I expected something like stop Avast and restore deleted file.

Yes you can restore it from quarantine but i guessing it will be detected and quarantined again if you do, so avast lab has to remove the FP detection
