Avast AV Release-Version [21.5.2470]

Changelog/Fixes:
• Fewer interruptions in fullscreen — When you’re running another app fullscreen, our antivirus will no longer open on top and interrupt you. We apologize if this happened to you! (And don’t worry, threat warnings will still appear, so you’ll always know about malware even while watching your favorite film)
• Introducing Webcam Shield reminders — If you’ve configured Webcam Shield to automatically block or allow apps, we’ll now remind you of this when an app tries to access your webcam so you don’t sit around wondering why your webcam isn’t working. (For Premium Security only)
• Updated privacy policies — We’ve updated our General Privacy Policy and other connected privacy policies. You can find them here: https://www.avast.com/privacy-policy
• Software Updater is giving us a headache these days - We had to temporarily remove this feature from Smart Scan to patch a few bugs, but users can still find and use it from their menu. We’ll be slowly rolling it back out to Smart Scan, so if you don’t see it there yet, please wait a few more days
• We’ve updated our UI rendered CEF to a new version (chromium 90.0.4430.93) to patch known security flaws
• Fixed issue with creating Rescue Disk for UEFI format (next to BIOS)
• Other Rescue Disk improvements: fixed a bug that prevented Rescue Disk from starting, improved keyboard controls, etc.
• Fixed a tray icon error that showed an issue notification despite everything being OK
• Fixed a Firewall issue where driver aswNetHub.sys caused a BSOD
• Fixed a leak of GDI objects
• Fixed the AvastClear utility, which didn’t properly remove the antivirus from Windows Security Centre

Avast AV Beta-Version [21.6.2471]

Changelog/Fixes:
• We're very excited to announce that Firewall will soon become a free feature in Avast Antivirus. It's very satisfying for us to realize all the network knowledge and expertise that was put into building our proprietary firewall will be materialized in a feature available to so many users around the world — strengthening our mission to provide amazing protection against cyber threats worldwide. Of course, the release of such a critical feature won't happen instantly for the user base as a whole. It will take us a few weeks to continuously roll it out for everyone. For now, all of our dedicated beta users will have a chance to enable it by themselves. You can do so from the post update screen (that will be shown once you get an 21.6 update) or through settings (Menu -> Settings -> Firewall).
   » Free firewall will feature:
      - Brand new UI (compared to our current one)
      - Automatic profile selection (with the option for the user to override it, of course)
      - Application overview / control (overview of apps that actively use network/internet plus their current network usage)
      - Revamped ask mode (ability to enable/disable specific connections originating from the app)
      - Status log (you will clearly see every app and device that was blocked by our Firewall, as well as why it was blocked)
      - Customizable rules for "hardcore users"
   » We will keep an advanced, premium firewall tier as well, which will have extra protection layers of: ARP spoofing detection, Port Scan Detection and Leak Protection for public networks
• Avast now sports a refreshed new menu that will ease the differentiation between AV features and other products
• Fixed issue with consent dialogue displayed in the wrong user session in case there is more users working on the same PC via RDP

Known issues:
• FW is running even when you enable Passive mode
• FW is installed when you're upgrading from Free to Premium even when you uninstalled it manually from the Free product previously
• FW rules can be deleted even when they are "locked" in the UI (it's just an UI glitch, the core rules won't actually be deleted)
• FW blocks SMB shares, printers, networks shares and network drivers after additional installation into the Free AV — the current workaround is to change the network configuration to private/disable FW
• FW might block some outgoing windows traffic
• SmartScan sometimes incorrectly reports the Firewall's state
• UI might crash when there is a request for showing a dialogue immediately after Log in into the OS
• There is a glitch in UI when you try to disable all core shield via advanced settings
