Frankly, boasting of downloading a crack, and then expecting that your AV should protect you from it isn't the sort of thing most folk here are into.
Avast will help you protect yourself very nicely indeed.
No AV will protect you from yourself.

ChetzZ,

I can imagine that when (notice that I said when and not if) you get infected and ask for help, you may find that many people here will not even bother to help you because of your poor attitude to security.

Ther are many free and capable programs that you can use instead and sometime they can be even better than the paid for programs.

Oh, I actually understood you very well.
I was being kind. Kinda sarcastic.

It seems you didn't understand me, though.
Simply and nicely put, stop looking for cracked software/keygens, you leech. >:(

Well, thanks for the good thoughts, but the fact is, I actually don't use any pirated software, and never knowingly have.
And I am sure there are a lot of folk just like me in that regard.
No need to.
I mean, what's the point?

"i mean whats the point" by Tarq57^^

Umm..I think "they" want the paid version so badly, "they" try those cracks for their own benefit not knowing the consequences "they" might encounter in the future...

U know wat they say, The Pro versions r better the the Free ones...

But personally i dont get "them"....

As everybody know...the best things in life r "Free"^^

@Alanrf, come on, do I need to explain?

Have a look at the Windows Defender agents. That is a nicely setup list of vulnarable points to monitor. My ideal Avast standard module would have those options (now it only has on exection and read and write check).  Checking every execution is not a sophisticated way of dealing with the blacklist.

When a programs registers itself, makes permanent changes on Vista/Windows 7 virtualised areas (file + reg), loads a driver, accesses disk, keyboard, memory directly or tries to intrude a kernel object, I would like Avast to check its black list data base. I would also like to tell the behavior 'monitor' to apply different sensitivity levels for different age patterns (like new programs < 1 day = high, between a day and a two weeks = medium, older than two weeks = low)


When malware behaviour patterns are recoginised, profile the executable (when it is not in the black list) and send it to Avast server for analysis. This to shorten the time between launch of zero-day malware and first recognistion of it in the wild.

Getting earlier malware samples from around the world, increases the effectivity of Avast, reduces time Avast professionals are now scanning for it and reduces the time between malware launch and recognition.

Regards Kees (by the way the same one as from wilders)

Ha die Kees1958,

Yes this is the newer av approach, however already some time with us, malware analyzing mode. I think in the light of the newer developments and online threats the thing that should be brought in is virtualization, so you can throw the application after the malware or vice versa and get rid of the infection completely. This even seems effective to thward a very destructive file infector like vitro, for which av at the mo (for XP at least) is offering no remedy other then f-disk- re-format and re-install.
Virtualization is a good policy for users that do not know how to confgure their OS and apps properly to be protected and use a special range of protection software. Real experts that aplly safe hex on an O.S. with only user rights and good in-browser protection, e.g. fx with NS and RP etc. hardly need resident AV or FW software, but I would not recommend this for the average user that does not know how to secure themselves. But virtualization and in the cloud scanning will be the future to keep malcode at bay,

groetjes van,

polonus

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

avast needs not only virtualisation as checks in virtual environments are easily recognized by malware code and it hides its malware features. avast also needs behavioral analysis in real environment. These two technologies are already implemented in BitDefender 2010 for example.

Well, yes and you did and many thanks for your input. 

I am just an avast user like you so I will be glad to see how much of your wish list is actually included in avast 5 when we see it.   If the avast team agree with you it will be there.  I strongly suspect that folks posting wish list items for the avast 5 release right now are just lucky or will be disappointed.
