New beta version 21.10.2497
« on: November 18, 2021, 02:23:11 PM »
Hi everyone,

there is a new beta version ready - 21.10.2497 (build 21.10.6750).

What's fixed
  • BSOD caused by Self-Protection module (mentioned as fixed in the previous BETA by mistake, my apologies)
  • problem with script shield not detecting specific samples
  • a few application crashes

Known issues
  • crash in Rescue Disk when closing it
  • a few other application crashes

Due to higher amount of application crashes in the new "icarus" setup configuration, this version of BETA will be skipped for it.

Download links
Avast free https://bits.avcdn.net/productfamily_ANTIVIRUS/insttype_FREE/platform_WIN/installertype_ONLINE/build_BETA
Avast premium https://bits.avcdn.net/productfamily_ANTIVIRUS/insttype_APR/platform_WIN/installertype_ONLINE/build_BETA

Enjoy this beta!
We are looking forward to your feedback.

Also please be informed that we would appreciate if you would be so kind and try our Antivirus product based on so called "icarus" setup (installation and update engine) already used for other Avast products but now available also for AV. More information is here: https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=264883.0.
Please note that in order to get it, you need to uninstall the current one (automatic migration is not supported at the moment).

Thanks for the new beta :)

Known issues
  • crash in Rescue Disk when closing it
  • a few other application crashes

Due to higher amount of application crashes in the new "icarus" setup configuration, this version of BETA will be skipped for it.
Since recently I ended up seeing 3 BSoDs within a week.
All of them caused by almost same operation, same BSoD code (KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE) with ntoskrnl.exe.

Maybe unrelated, who knows...

No BSODs here (yet), but I can confirm the crashes.

Still having the web error "Network Protocol Error" with Firefox. I have to disable it to browse.


Also having program crashes without error. The Windows EventLog give me this at crash´s time:

Process C:\Program Files\Avast Software\Avast\aswToolsSvc.exe (process ID:3504) reset policy scheme from {381b4222-f694-41f0-9685-ff5bb260df2e} to {8c5e7fda-e8bf-4a96-9a85-a6e23a8c635c}

And I was so looking forward towards the first beta of 21.10  :(

Since it was promised that it would be fixed by now:

Ah okay so this is a known issue.
