Good to know that it will be updated in the next version of the UI.
Now why was it affected in version 23.12?
This is our doubt because there are many people who are on version 23.12.

Where are these 'many' effected ?
They certainly aren't here in their droves.  For the most part many don't take regular excursions into the UI.

Our lives don't depend on it.

There is no need for an urgent response to this.

I totally agree, the degree of the problem would impact the urgency of response.  e.g. does it impact on the protection provided by Avast.
It would also be down to the number of people actually effected.  I haven't seen it in either 23.12 or 24.1, so how widespread it is we simply don't know.

I certainly wouldn't put this issue in that area.

Just look at the launch and other topics, there are always people talking about it.

It's likely the UI version, which you can see from the About page. The UI version updates independently of the program version (though sometimes with a new program version comes a new UI version), and that UI version could be buggy. Just an educated guess though.

Thank you great friend.
I now see my UI, it is updated. even though I have version 23.12.

Several on the forums out of hundreds of millions of Avast users, can you not see the difference between a few in the forums.

True, I agree with you. Even so, it's still a bug. whether he is critical or not. the problem exists.

Do the math here.

There are less than 15 active/regular posters on this forum even if we include Avast staff, and at least four or five have pointed out that they are experiencing this bug. Law of averages would tell us that the bug is affecting many many more users even if the average user doesn't ever open up their UI to look at anything, let alone the notifications, let alone the timestamp on said notifications.

A bug is a bug is a bug, regardless of how many people it's affecting and how many people are actively noticing it.

If you want to argue that the severity of the bug means it shouldn't be treated with the highest priority (which no one is advocating for, to be clear. Just that it be acknowledged, which it was), then that's a different stance that I could agree with. But the number of people who pointed out the bug should be irrelevant.

I completely agree with you my friend.
We are always here on the forum, trying to report and help people, when we talk about the bug, the vast majority ignore the case, saying that the bug is not for everyone and others.
Guys, whether the bug is big or small, you always have to take a good look at what we're doing here.
I'm thinking they don't see other forums. The business in the other Kaspersky forums, Eset the neogene is catching fire. staff treat what we report with great relevance.

Same here, 24.1 version.

I saw the problem when Avast threw a blue ball in systray, saying I have a notification. I wasn't in front of the computer for an hour so I went to see what is it and I have no idea if it was something from history or actually new blocked threat because date is 20 jan 1970 and time is completely wrong and not working.
Now I have no idea what the notifiaction was about. So yeah, it is a problem.

There is no need for an urgent response to this.
however, I would like to downside what I said.

In my history, I've just seen a notification of a new device that ( apparently ) doesn't belong to me and for which I hadn't seen the alert in real time.

So, I can't see the date when it connected to see if it was one of my devices (misidentified) or if it was an intruder.  :-[

Let's hope that the next update gives us the right date/time again.

It is also on UI version 1.0.796 as I haven't updated had the UI update delivered.

However on mine it looks like the Black column is part of the main UI screen, in the background, see attached images.

Confirm what DavidR says.

Black area is the main GUI underneath -- 1st png shows UI version 1.0.1076 - unchanged, 2nd png shows black area of main GUI.

Notifications History still shows as January 20, 1970 at 12:19 PM on all History Alerts (9).  Unchanged.

Avast has protected me from malware since 2013 - ish without fail, but I've also practiced safe browsing habits and safe computing practices since then.  Other antiviruses such as Norton, MacAfee, and Eset have all fallen down and resuted in an infected system from which I had to restore a system backup to recover from.

Avast is a part of malware-free computing; I am the other half.   :)
