Vlk,

What is the direct download link for AIS so that I can help users?  Thanks.

Try this: http://files.avast.com/iavs5x/setup_ais.exe

NOT Vlk
Thanks Vladimyr.  I bet it's not the first time you were called his name.  ;D

Hi I downloaded the new version earlier from my update box and it was causing me problems? the icon stopped rotating and I kept getting "avast not responding" message? I restarted a few times and was still getting the same problems, I tried getting onto here but my computer just froze,I have done a system restore and everything is back to normal now?

Pleased to report that (after a firewall component uninstall and reinstall) the long filename/short filename problem appears resolved in 5.0.677. Starts via both filename versions of an application (I tried on wksss.exe) are now blocked from outbound connection by the same rule.

@mag:

Actually, this hasn't been fixed yet -- could you please tell me how did you test it?
Did you execute wksss.exe with short path? [e.g. did you type "c:\progra~1\wksss.exe" in cmd.exe?]

I think the outcome depends fully on the application which is used for wksss.exe execution.

@pk

This is what happened with 5.0.594:

Default Rules set to Auto-decide.
Application Rule for Works spreadsheet set to Block all connections.
Open Works spreadsheet - Application Rule reverts to Friends in/Internet out - Works connect to internet.

This is what happens now on 5.0.677:

Default Rules set to Auto-decide.
Application Rule for Works set to Block all connections.
Open Works spreadsheet from start menu - connection to internet is blocked.
Open works spreadsheet by opening an existing file - connection to internet is blocked.

The two different ways of opening the program use different forms of the filename (as the screendump from the firewall log shows).
That, plus the fact that the problem has gone away, led me (wrongly it seems) to think that the problem had been fixed.

I hope it can be resolved. It's the only remainin gbug that I seem to have in AIS (and also it worries me a bit that the 5.0.594
behaviour might represent a firewall vulnerability that malware could exploit).

The auto update worked so quietly I hadn't even noticed it  ;D  all appears to be running well, thank you.
