Sf.bin is part of the virus database, i.e. it's identical both in 6.0.1000 and 6.0.1021 (or even 5.1).
When exactly does it crash?

So... does "crash" actually mean "freeze"?

3* Advanced settings for Script & network shield. Both need to set-up generating report files (behavior shield also need report file section). Script shield should have possiblity to set-up heuristics and action when bad script found. Network shield should have to set-up excludes.
Can't comment really on script shield, but I doubt network shield will ever have exclusion lists. The network shield block list is generally reserved for known malware distribution sites, so having an option to exclude something there would not be a good option.
Those lists can and have been wrong, or a user may want to use a site even if its on the list. Without exclusions the users is forced to turn off network protection - which is bad.

On the script side, some trusted sites generate a lot of scripts. Would be great for users who uses those sites to exclude them and avoid the latency/cpu hits.

Having a INI level setting at least be good.

Thanks,

@ reesd,

Did you look at the date of the thread/last post (March 2011), and Avast version (6.0.1021) of the thread you posted in?  This isn't even for the current version of Avast, which is now v.6.0.1125.

This thread should be closed.
Mac 10.9.4 /Safari and Firefox (NoScript/AdBlockPlus/BetterPrivacy/Ghostey)/
Vista Home Prem (same add-on's)/Avast Free/Online Armor Premium Firewall/MBAM Premium)/ Mobile MBAM.

Yes, it's 1125 and it has the same issue. No settings for for script shield or network shield. I chose this thread to comment because it had the most discussion and the most recent discussion on these two issues.

Personally if I was starting the conversation I would have started a new thread rather than posting it in a version announcement, but I didn't and this is where the discussion and the people involved in it were located.

But hey, I don't want to ruffle anyone's feathers, so copied my post and quote to http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=72318.msg649682#msg649682 which is also related to this subject. Unfortunately its even older, so maybe I can look forward to someone commenting on it being an older thread there also :).
