Avast Internet Security blocked an update attemptt?
« on: February 19, 2012, 03:44:11 AM »
Hello,

I was watching a Youtube video earlier and all of a sudden i got 2 warnings from Avast saying that a threat has been detected and it prevented something from downloading. The particular was "http://download117.avast.com/iavs5x/prod?" I assume that's a server for updates, but is it legit? In addition, i noticed the forums were down for quite some time, did that something to do with download117?

I also asked the same question in the Wilderssecurity forums and other people also experienced the same problem. Please refer here for more details: http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?p=2018049#post2018049

Thanks!
