[FALSE Positive] AVAST blocking FileSonic :(
« on: March 21, 2011, 03:03:49 PM »


AVAST is blocking

FileSonic downloads :(


as of now I'm facing this issue specifically with filesonic.in

not sure if other servers of FileSonic are also being blocked... i.e.  filesonic.com , filesonic.uk , etc...


these are false positives, and I hope the next definition update will fix it...

if yall can't fix it on your side,

can yall atleast tell me if there's a way to add an exception in Network Shield ?


all other shields have this option, but not this one :/

Submitted as FP via http://www.avast.com/contact-form.php?loadStyles

Exceptions are set in Web Shield, not Network Shield.

The relevant info is the last post. It was a FP, and will be fixed.

Well, then simply wait until it is checked and eventually removed. I guess you can live a couple of hours without the site.  :P
