Avast is showing botnet:blacklist hits on latest version

Post by empuser » Tue Jun 30, 2020 7:57 pm

I have no idea about cyber-security so I have no idea what that means, but it's happening on both mine and my wife's computer.

Same here. Only seems to happen when the PC is idle (no popup warning while watching YouTube for instance.)

Could you share a screenshot of this error/"hit"? Thank you!
Maybe in the Avast app's logs? It should tell you what is it blocking...

Multiple IP addresses and different ports, sometimes tcp, sometimes udp.

Could you guys open a Github ticket about this, and then the rest chime in too?

https://github.com/qbittorrent/qBittorrent/issues/new

I could open it myself but tickets require way more information (for good reason) than what I can read out from the posts here.
Thank you very much. By the way I use AVG, which is a rebranded Avast, and I do NOT get any type of blocks/messages on latest version.

For whatever reason this has stopped happening as of yesterday (Wednseday 7/1) and haven't seen one since. If it happens again I can start a github ticket...

Has it stopped for everyone else as well?
