Avast Antivirus 6.0 Free Released
AVAST Software has released Avast Antivirus’s most awaited latest version, version 6.0. Avast Antivirus 6 comes with many new features and improvements. We talked about some of these when we wrote about the beta release.
Avast Antivirus 6 now also comes with a completely revamped user interface for easier scanning. One of the most important changes coming into avast! 6 is the AutoSandbox feature that executes suspicious files in a sandbox environment isolated from the system and based on the file’s behavior, it decides whether the file is a threat or not.
Another new feature called Website Reputation System (avast! WebRep). It is a community-based reputation system that informs you of what other avast! users think of the website that you’re visiting.
avast! 6 Features:
- AutoSandbox: AutoSandbox identifies suspicious applications and automatically prompts users to run them in a safe virtual environment.
- WebRep: The first reputation guide for malware and website content incorporated into a free antivirus application.
- More internet protection: Additional internet security options have been added to the new avast! 6.0 Free Antivirus. Avast! Free Antivirus now includes both Web and Script Shields, protecting users at both the http level and the browser level. Site Blocking, another new feature in avast! Free Antivirus, allows users to block selected websites.
- Knows what’s bad: Recognizes and stops malware attacks in the billions, thanks to CommunityIQ sensors.
