Below are just a few from a personal collection of mine over the years to find to my amazement, Avast is missing out on some fun. Now I do have to state I do like Avast and enjoy using the product, however I am sad to see things like this occur. I have submitted several of these files to the lab time and time again to find no new changes in my scans. I hope we can refrain from insulting me for my huge post here and maybe work together as a community and solve this lack of detection. If you care to view the links, Please take note on the Dates on all of them. I think you will be in for a good one.


Until next time,

This worries me... I believe avast team has a good and hard effort to improve detection and probably your samples aren't in the wild... But should we wait that much? Does it worth submitting?

Presumably you have sent these samples to avast, as just sending them to virustotal isn't very effective at all.

From virustotal FAQ

In exchange for providing an antivirus engine you will receive all files submitted to VirusTotal that are not detected by your product and are detected by at least one other antivirus, along with their corresponding VirusTotal reports.

So avast will get the files if I submit them or not.

Yes, but it could take a while.
It's always better to submit it directly to the avast! av lab.
