Virus bulletin April 2008
« on: May 08, 2008, 06:36:10 PM »
I am a recent convert to Avast! using 4.8 Home and was surprised to see Avast do very poorly on the April 08 Virus Bulletin test.  Any explanation, plans to tighten the protection?  They reported 19 missed wildlist viruses which is a big change from previous passes or fails by only 1 miss/false positive.

Thanks!

This was reported before, as far I know.
All samples of the same virus: http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=34623.msg290542#msg290542

Sorry, I did use the search for "Virus Bulletin" and must have overlooked it.  Thanks.  You can close out this as a duplicate topic.
