[17:54] <Lishy> something weeeeiiiiiiiirdddd just happened with avast
[17:54] <Lishy> I JUST GOT TWO "Malicious url blocked" messages, something about avast in the url
[17:55] <Lishy> WTF just happened? And how can I check the logs of that? I can't find it anywhere in the program
[17:57] <Lishy> network shield shows / 2 ofconnections infected
[17:57] <Lishy> specifically, last blocked connection says "http://download117.avast.com/iav5x/prod-ais.vpx"
[17:58] <Lishy> Anyone know WTF just happened, please!?
[18:04] <Lishy> avast's forum is also down.. Is it possible they were hacked? How do I investigate the details of what I blocked?
To clarify after my IRC logs, I was minding my own business working on something in wordpad, when randomly Avast popped up with a "malicious url blocked" at the bottom right. I'm not sure what happened, but the blocked URL had to do with Avast. Moments later, another blocked url occured. I do not know how to check Avast's network shield logs, but in the statistics it said the last url blocked was "http://download117.avast.com/iav5x/prod-ais.vpx", which makes me think Avast might be nothing more than freaking out over its own update. Still, I am paranoid.
I posted Hijackthis logs on irc, but they aren't allowed in this forum. If they are necessary to further investigate, I will post them however. Thanks!
Also, Avast's forum gives me the message "Sorry, SMF was unable to connect to the database. This may be caused by the server being busy. Please try again later.". Is it just me or for others too?
