Does [Susp] mean Suspected or Suspicious? Or something else?
« on: January 20, 2024, 08:44:22 AM »
Avast's Web shield blocked two different postimg.cc links (but still let me view the images themselves which was odd) because it claimed the pages were infected with HTML:IFrame-inf [Susp]. Now Avast did claim to block it, and I did both a Avast smart scan and Windows Defender quick scan just as preliminary measures which found nothing. I'm about to do a full scan with Avast right just to be safe (and i'm about to go to sleep any way). But I'm curious what that [Susp] part means and if it's Avast saying that if it's Suspected or Suspicious maybe it means they're just being cautious?

I think it is placed as suspicious but I think a copy of this file goes to the Avast servers to be analyzed after an analysis it may be on the blacklist or not, I think it is like this, as the vast majority of antiviruses do .
OS: Windows 10 PRO / Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6500U CPU 2.60 GHz.
Real Time: Avast Premium Security: 24.2.6104 (compilação 24.2.8904.819) IU: 1.0.799
Moble: Avast Security: 24.3.0-1004091
VPN: Avast SecureLine VPN: 5.29.9498

Well it doesn't look like a file made it onto my computer, it was a website that was blocked.

Avast virus scans came back clean, by the way.

I have never had anything go into this folder, although plenty of emails I get could  have been there.   Is there a way to submit an email so Avast can get their shit together?
