Avast, a trojan horse?


Recommended Posts


I have a question about a possible False positive. So, I installed malwarebytes and avast on my Toshiba computer (with Windows 7). And I don’t why I received several notifications and it concerned avast and apparently trojan horses. Malwarebytes considered a Trojan horse with avast. I’ve never had any problem with Avast and Malwarebytes until yesterday. I’ve always used both at the same time.

After that, I unistalled Avast and I installed again. Since, this morning, I don’t have any problem

My question is : do you think it’s a false positive? Or, it was only a problem with Avast installation ? Or is it a real trojan horse?

I used Malwarebytes and it didn’t find anything.

In the report, I had a message in several lines :


(Type: outgoing, Port: 50922, Process: avastsvc.exe)

(Type: outgoing, Port: 51311, Process: avastsvc.exe)

(Type: outgoing, Port: 51312, Process: avastsvc.exe)

(Type: outgoing, Port: 51313, Process: avastsvc.exe)


Thank for your help.
