Bug in Firewall
« on: September 30, 2022, 08:48:19 AM »
There seems to be a bug in the Firewall in Avast Premium Security. When setting the firewall to Ask about new apps, sometimes it's automatically changed to Smart mode. This is a serious bug as you're unable to trust the firewall to honor the configuration.

Hi,

Do you see it changing from Ask to Smart Mode in the Firewall settings, or are you referring to the behaviour?

It changes from Ask to Smart mode in the settings, and subsequently in behaviour. I've changed it to Ask probably 10 times the last month. It keeps the value for a while, and then suddenly it's back to Smart mode without warning or user action.

Did you change any other settings anywhere in Avast, or deactivate and re-activate shields or settings in the meantime?

No, no other changes were done in Avast between setting it to Ask and it being automatically changed to Smart mode.
