Good it is troublesome or impossible, means the service provider is scanning mails for malware..!!! :D

Well, actually not really... Many mailservers will simply drop/strip anything password-protected since they can't scan it. Meaning, avast won't get the sample.

There is difference in just "password protecting" and "password protecting and encrypting." So dig in 7-zip, you will come to know.

I went through this link
http://www.medicalnerds.com/how-to-encrypt-zip-files-securely-using-7zip/
and tried to encrypt, password protect and then upload.
But uploading failed again.

Well, what I meant was it's good for the user, if he has a SP that takes care of malware.
Certainly it's not good for the samples beeing missed by avast, as they never get them.
Btw, samples can also be sent to alwil using the option in the chest...

No, you need to select encrypt file names. I have sent files before to avast successfully and also to friends.

YOU ARE WRONG,gmail send protected encrypted archives with any thing in side them
Strange... Gmail never allowed me to send exe files archived into zip... I use 7zip format instead.

i say password protected and Encrypted,last year i send over XX samples to kaspersky labs like this.
any way over 100 million users send every day a lot of samples via avast community"or behavior shield"no need to send more samples also alwil team check the malware sites every hour so i guess that is enough in addition to the samples we send

Yes take you are right. Using 7zip helps us to encrypt file names. Thanks to igor.

Yeah, that's indeed wonderful and very user friendly. See, instead of a webform available via HTTPS you'll tell users to install 7zip and then spend a couple of hours navigating them how to encrypt filenames.  ::)

Done now, thanks to Tech and nmb.
But I agree with doktornotor.
So, to send files we have to use 7zip. Is there any such option for WinRar or WinZip or Power-Archiver or TugZip or PeaZip or ....
I think we need a tutorial section here about how to encrypt filename using .... utilities

I know there is option to send files through Virus Chest. But there are few persons like me who love Avast, recommend it to all but do not use it all time because of the habit of testing different AVs time to time.

1. Webform to submit malwares by non Avast users. The email service is no good because gmail blocks exe file upload even in password protected archives.


that's only possible if you use a software that doesn't allow file name encryption too; otherwise they have no mean to read the content, i.e. file types inside an archive.

@Asyn, I use winrar in my PC. To test this I have just installed 7zip. :o Winrar is better in my Opinion.
@Logos, I think almost all now supports that, but how many of us know how to do that. Please tell me how to do that using WinRAR.  ;)
Edit: I saw that you updated your post. Don't you think we should have a tutorial page for all well known archiver?

It's your opinion, but you can use both without any problems... :D

Just knew from Logos that it can also be done with WinRar.  :)
