Git Bash blocked by the MITM logics of Avast Free Antivirus
« on: September 06, 2023, 09:47:02 PM »
Hello Everyone,
I'm new to this Community.

Just found the reason that since some months is blocking Git Bash (https://gitforwindows.org/) to be easily updated on my Windows 10 Pro.
Disabling Avast Free Antivirus allows the update to work, otherwise:
$ git update-git-for-windows
curl: (35) schannel: next InitializeSecurityContext failed: Unknown error (0x80092012) - The revocation function was unable to check revocation for the certificate.


More info in https://github.com/git-for-windows/git/issues/3930.

Any advice?

Thanks in advance,
Matteo

Quick reply:
At Avast disable SSL scanning at Avast options when you want update Git Bash, then enable it again

Better reply:
Wait for staff reply

Thanks @Leo3487, much appreciated!
That is my plan which I consider as plan B ;).

Local MITM - which is quite sensitive on its own since you need to trust who is using that technique - should be transparent and not preventing the security of another software e.g. a security update: Git Bash has a daily update check which cannot work too.

I'm pretty sure that this issue affects even the paid version.

Let's wait  8).
