RTZ Posted December 10, 2008 Share Posted December 10, 2008 From Matthew Rizos at http://remove-malware.com/ Avast Prevention Test Videos Posted by malwarekilla December 10, 2008 Last night I tested Avast Antivirus 4.8 Home against a few malicious URL's and Exe's and the results were less than perfect. Avast let a trojan install on the PC and then couldn't remove it once it was on. Later the PC was turned into a BOT and started sending SPAM (video 2). Here are some facts on the test since I know I'll get questions: The PC was clean Latest Avast was loaded The Avast VPS was updated minutes before the video All shields were all turned on high 5-7 URLS were tested 1 trojan infection was confirmed 1 exe failed to elicit any response from Avast (silent malware/rootkit) PC was turned into a spamming BOT http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iquamx6LY0w...on-test-videos/ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
