Hi Henrique - RJ,

Phishing sites is not a main field for av solutions, but I agree with you that it should be found up by the avast shield, it is found up by WOT and Norton Safe Web as you see here: http://www.urlvoid.com/scan/bradescohome-ru.1gb.ru
Phishing Attacks   (

Threats found: 1
Here is a complete list:
Location:    htxp://bradescohome-ru.1gb.ru/log/site/perfil/index.php

The developers on the avast shield work fast because I have detection now for it as "Avast has blocked a malicious site" and an advice to visit this community portal, so thank yourself for reporting, it works,

WOT doesn't like the 1gb.ru domain either http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/1gb.ru. Nor the first one you gave http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/bradescohome-ru.1gb.ru.

Yeah...even firefox block this site. Maybe it's not concern for AV products, but it's must on Internet Security. Please make some improvement avast team...there are many problem/bugs in avast 5 i found.

should absolutely be detected and at least blocked by the network shield, and OFC it's up to Avast to take care of that ::) In the meantime Chrome blocks it.

Please

I would like to see is avast detect the php file and not the url (similar in detection of avira).

This would serve to prevent the cracker hosts the same php on another server with another url.

Thanks

EDIT.:

Another example:

Phishing site: hxxp://www.lojadakatia.com.br/Scripts/recadastro/scripts/ib2k1.dll/perfil/
