guys,there is no boycott from avast...its a enforced law on all [well if not all then on many of them] AV companies..please try and understand  :-*

and also we already discussed about some drawbacks on av-comparatives and av-test:

and lets not forget the AV-comparative result given here:

Why is n't there any OFFICIAL STATEMENT about avast restriction
Banning people without any statement is not routine
examples:
www.pctools.com/embargo

AVAST Software a.s. is currently blocking access to port 80 (that effectively means websites and updates of avast! software) of its servers from following countries: Iran, Sudan, Cuba, Syria, North Korea and Burma/Myanmar. AVAST Software a.s. [and its subsidiaries/sister companies] must not provide any services in these countries because of policies and regulations that are applicable to AVAST Software a.s.

Blog and forum are available, because we hope they are information source/personal communication service and because of this they have exclusion from these regulations.

We are sorry for any caused inconvenience.


If your enmity with the Iranian people and Iran's repressive government.
We Iranians are dealing with a variety of filtering websites that our government imposes.
Iranians can hurt you
Avast disgusting sorry for you and your company.

You know avast, if Iranian people want to use your poor software, they can update their antivirus without any problems by a thousand ways, but they really don't like your restriction, so wait for answers from them ...

IRANIANS, use some other softwares like NIS, KIS, ESS, BIS and .... without any problems for updating definitions ! ...

@ true indian,
The best way to not get your own fingers burnt and to avoid further confrontation is to not reply to a comment that needs no reply.

Doing so you are supporting the spread of duqu, flame, etc... You, the av industry, should fight against it as you are risking all of us, not only the boycotted countries.

Maybe you should contact and blame those that are responsible. It isn't Avast or any of the other Security Companies.
Blame the politicians in the countries that imposed the restrictions and, the politicians in the boycotted countries that forced these actions.

You should be able to find them on a lot of sites, like MajorGeeks.com
Such as this link: http://majorgeeks.com/avast_Virus_Definitions_d5150.html (defs as of June 20)
The alternative is run thru a Proxy that is not based in your country.
Dell Dimension 8200 P4 1.8Ghz Windows XP PRO SP3
Avast Free Antivirus 18.8.2356
Toshiba Satellite C855-S5347 Celeron B830 1.8Ghz
Windows 10 Home 64 Bit Version 1909 Build 18363.900
Avast Free Antivirus 20.4.2410 Build 20.4.5312.578

Right now, this seems to the only solution for the whole country...
