Avast window in AVG?

The underlaying components are shared between avast! and AVG and it most likely said "avast!" in some AVG window, which is what they fixed to have a certain consistency of the interface (somewhat like seeing a Volkswagen branded component inside Audi, we all know they share components, but people prefer no to see that).

Hi all

New AVG Beta version 18.4.3054

What's new:
New Sensitive Data Shield (aka SDS) component (AVG Internet Security)
  • it scans for documents (pdf,doc,txt) on your PC that contain sensitive information (agreements, work documents, flight tickets etc) and offers an extra protection of those
  • the documents are then protected against access by untrusted apps
Known issues:
  • SDS component is installed but disabled after update to this beta. You can enable it manually through main UI (tile Privacy → open SDS component → Settings)
  • SDS is not visible in main settings (but settings are accessible as mentioned above)
What was fixed:
  • Web Shield: Connection aborted but detection dialog was not displayed in some cases
  • Antispam: Updated detection module

With best Regards

SDS is commonly called DLP. Data Loss Prevention in the enterprise world. It's a growing feature to prevent loss of sensitive data. For example with a Fortigate you can scan in documents and put signatures for sensitive documents in the Fortinet Fabric, or 'traits' of sensitive documents so they can be logged/monitored, quarantined, or blocked along with notification of who is sending that sensitive material out.

My concern with having this on the endpoint is huge. Do you trust your AV to scan for deeply sensitive documents? Where are they storing the data about those documents and information? Is there any logging or telemetry involved with any of this?

You'd be insane to turn this on without a white paper from Avast/AVG which are the most 'spy-like' companies I've seen next to Facebook.

Hi all

What was fixed:
  • Sensitive Data Shield
    • shield is now enabled even after program update
    • other minor changes and fixes
  • GDPR compliance: added new options in Privacy section in General Settings ( paid programs)
  • Setup: UI is now installed in second phase of setup. It should have positive impact on installation success and installation speed

New AVG Beta version 18.4.3055

Did the 18.4.x Beta version fail to install? What errors messages appeared? What OS and other security installed?
