Changelog Avast 20.5 (02/07/2020)
  • Introducing Remote Access Shield - Enjoy even stronger protection against hackers. 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
  • Easier 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
  • Better botnet protection - Web Shield is even better about stopping malware from connecting to malicious servers

Things to note:

  • We are no longer releasing new versions of Internet Security and Pro. Every Pro/IS user updated to 20.5 version will end up on Premium Security to enjoy the full feature-set of paid version.
  • Teaser for our dedicated forum users: We've added support for scanning Google QUIC protocol in Webshield, though it's enabled only for some users at the moment. We plan to full scale it in the upcoming version.

...and from about 110 other smaller or larger tasks, we pick here the fixes of:

  • corner cases when Firewall was consuming too much CPU in correlation with VPS requests
  • Cleanup install detection upon switching to x64 version (Congrats to Cleanup team and sorry when the app was being offered to you even if you had it already)
  • bugs in protecting passwords stored in Firefox and Chrome that were installed after Avast AV
  • some RescueDisk failures when being created on USB
  • UI glitches for enabling/disabling shield in Protection section
