Are you submitting the samples to avast?
If not, you're losing your time posting the links...

And what is the relationship between avast and Comodo in this case?

Actually when you submit a malicious file to VT, VT will submit the undetected malware to both Avast and Comodo, so I do not understand why such a thread exist on both the Avast and Comodo forum.

Anyway I will not hijack this thread with a Comodo discussion.

Keep up with your submission guys.

When you're facing a sample that avast is not detecting... and you check with virustotal and yet avast does not detect... Or when you get infected because avast simple failed... well, you think you could have a place to say: Hey, avast detection rate could be better.

But it still achieves 'nothing' and as I keep saying if you don't go back and modify your posts when it is added, then it is a totally one sided, unbalanced topic that helps 'no one' other than to allow someone to vent their spleen.

It is a total waste of time, avast will always be trying to improve detections. It is the nature of the beast that AVs will always be playing catchup. This is why the generic, algorithmic, behavioural and heuristic signatures/rules were introduced to help improve over just signature based detection.

I agree with David, this topic is useless.

Unless avast open a topic like MBAM has for posting malwares, this kind of topic is useless.

Just something else is about submitted malwares end, we never know what happened to malwares we have submitted, Delivered or not? Some of them are being added to database but what about those that are not detected? Are they clean or they are just being ignored?

avast! need more way for collecting malwares, a web-interface is essential, something that does not cost much for avast because they already have resource for that (A public FTP Folder with enough hosting, bandwidth etc) and just need time and a technical team work on that a few days. I don't want post link to other vendors website because some people don't like, if not, I could post some example ;)
