February 5, SecurityWeek – (International) Avast patches vulnerability in SafeZone Tool. A researcher from Google discovered a vulnerability in Avast’s SafeZone tool, also known as Avastium, that allowed attackers to gain additional privileges and conduct various actions on the system by convincing a victim to visit a malicious Uniform Resource Locator (URL). The vulnerability was exploited due to Avast’s low security check which allowed any URL to pass through without any restrictions. Source
