« on: April 03, 2024, 02:12:35 PM »
Hello,
Please welcome the version 24.3 of Avast AV released on April 2nd, 2024

Major public announcement:
  • Automated Scan Schedule – Smart Scan has the option to adjust the frequency of your scan, allowing more automated detection.
  • Encrypted Client Hello – We’ve enhanced Web Shield with new support standards, making users’ connections safer. HTTPS connections leak information in the TLS ClientHello to the network, notably the hostname of the website being accessed. When supported by the website, ECH allows encrypting this message with a key provided by the server.
  • other fixes and improvements.


How to install:

It isn't so much being blocked by uBlock Origin but by the so called EasyList filter/add-on to uBlock Origin. 
You can opt to ignore it and proceed or add it to the 'Don't warn me again about this site or click the uBlock Origin add-on icon and disable for this site.

Why this would suddenly be the case is beyond me.
Not that I download the on-line installation file.

Can confirm. Just updated. Went through the UI. Everything else appears to have been smooth with no issues so far.

You shouldn't have got it if you have Program Updates set to Manual, which of course you didn't mention.

I had to go looking for the update as I HAVE Program Updates set to Manual.

The domain was added due to various adcompanies sending out unsolicated request popups from bits.avcdn.net. Maybe Avast should look more in how they market and advertise online.

Then you shouldn't have a problem.
It wasn't forced on me.
