Avast Network Shield use to block www.antispyware.com. The site is not blocked by the latest version .677. Why??

Thanxx

site "looks" clean at first sight, but download doesn't look clean at all ;D

>>> site should definitely be blocked again (as expected when having a quick look at the page, that's a rogue, not detected by Avast btw )

Agreed, whilst WOT isn't to be taken as gospel and can be poor at times it is very emphatic in this case, http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/antispyware.com and also http://www.urlvoid.com/scan/antispyware.com.

Yes the site should be blocked again. Every Avast version always blocked this site. I thought Network Shield here is not working. So this .677 version is not blocking this site, right??

It has nothing to do with the avast version the network shields malicious sites list is updated during the virus definitions and engine updates.

I have reported it for further analysis.

oh thanks for the tip ::)... but the OP just asked if the network shield in 677 detected anything,and the answer remains no. (whatever the network shield depends on... not mentioning that the module itself could fail, and this belong to the build)

edit: but okay, engine and database are mainly responsible, but I think I knew that :)

Well yes and no, it depends on how you read the question.

To me that reads, naren17 asks if the failed blocking is specifically a problem in 5.0.677 and that is why I gave that response.

Actually the site and the downloaded application are clean, but after install, when the program runs, it's process "Anti-Spyware.exe" is blocked by Avast's network shield because the process is trying to connect to a harmful site, see screenshot above:
