Avast Business Antivirus 21.1

Release Summary

This release contains new improvements and bug fixes to the Avast Business Antivirus client.

Improvements
  • More informative threat alerts - If you get an alert, click ‘See details’ to see what type of threat it is (e.g., adware, ransomware, scam, etc.) and a brief description.
  • Tidier threat alerts - If you ever run into multiple threats at once, you'll no longer be bombarded with one alert after another. Instead, we've combined these into a single alert according to the shield that detected them.
  • Alert ID - Every threat alert now includes a unique ID in the bottom-left corner. If you ever share a screenshot with the Avast support team, this ID will help them to identify your problem.
  • Improved PUP detections.
  • Fixed rare crash of bccavsvc service.
  • Fixed issues with antispam engine.
  • Patched Sandbox escape method (along with silent updates to previous AV versions).
  • Fixed some unwanted merging of old / default avast5.ini configuration.
  • Fixed a rare bug that closed the UI when you changed the AV language.
  • Silenced some background network scans in case they weren't required.
  • Arranged for a more thorough uninstall (BugReport file is no longer left over).
  • Implemented Remote Access Shield conflict warnings in Passive Mode.
  • Fixed an issue where detection dialogs were stuck behind the main UI when opened.
