Ooooh, interesting ...... I didn't know Avast had the capability (knew they detected malicious content at the domain level, but that's about it). I'll have to re-check that when I get some time :)

Hi Steve,

I'd be interested in your findings and opinions on that and how it compares with MBAM's IP blocking. The interesting thing was that Avast!'s blocking was immediate; MBAM hadn't reacted at that point. When I repeated the attempt to access with the "Network Shield" temporarily disabled MBAM's IP blocker cut in (as it should, of course) after a few seconds delay with no objection (conflicts, error messages etc) coming from Avast!

I've had this experience once or twice before and have never seen a conflict between the two. Currently I have both the IP blocker on and that particular module of Avast! Professional (the "Network Shield") also on, ie running in realtime and there is no conflict that I can see. I haven't set any exclusions at all in Avast! either. Hope that helps a little.

I'll look into it when I get time and report back :)

As an addendum, the domain the OP mentioned, is hosted by PlusNet, who just happen to be my ISP too, so I've fired off a note to them to let them know another customers site has been compromised.
