Official avast! Forum is finally back online and running after almost a month since the hacker attack. No details about the attack were shared but apparently avast! improved the users security.

They are now using own database to store encrypted user’s passwords. Also the login process is now protected by the avast! SSL technology. Hopefully these changes will keep avast! Forum secured and safe.

AVAST hasn’t been the only company which got their forum hacked, also ESET announced their forum database with usernames and passwords has been compromised.

My name is Paul and I love Avast since the Home Edition v4.8 (2008). I am recommending it to all my friends, but I realized they don't know how to use it. So I started this site in order to help others getting maximum from this awesome antivirus. Feel free to contact me via Facebook, comments below or this form.
