Hi everyone,

I`m glad to announce that new beta version is ready - 20.5.2411 (build 20.5.5366).

What's new
Introducing Remote Access Shield - This new feature lets you choose who can remotely access your computer and lets you block the rest. (Premium Security users only)
Ransomware Shield is now free - We’re now offering this feature to Avast Free Antivirus users to maximize their ransomware protection
Better USB drive protection - We’ll now ask you to scan USB drives when you plug them into your computer. (You can also turn this off in your notification settings)
Improved taskbar icon - There’s no need to keep your antivirus open during scans. You can now see your scan progress from the Avast taskbar icon
Google QUIC protocol support added to Webshield - It can affect anything from the "google ecosystem" so please let us know in case of any issues with e.g. Chrome, Opera, MS Edge, Drive, Calendar, Youtube...

The issue affects Windows 8 and 10 too, except that it only delays the shutdown instead of blocking it.
