Avast blocking AutoPatchRestart.exe

Is anyone else having problems with Avast blocking CO?

On Sunday I'd been playing for hours; also played on Saturday and was fully autopatched. Had one character sitting online and, several minutes previously, had exited a second CO session ready to login another character.

Then I suddenly got a pop-up warning from Avast antivirus. Process C:\Program Files\Conquer Online 2.0\AutoPatchRestart.exe was apparently trying to send some data to an address marked as suspicious. The address it was trying to send to started with http://yodasp.1dumb.com/index.php. Avast had blocked it.

I've checked AutoPatchRestart.exe and it has the same details as the versions two of my friends have (same size; same date & time modified). I've scanned the file, the CO folder and my whole system: no virus or anything like that has been found. I've even replaced my AutoPatchRestart.exe with one from a friend. But when I try to run CO now Avast wants me to start it up in a sandbox.

- Why would AutoPatchRestart be active when there was no autopatching going on?
- That site name doesn't look like one TQ would use.

Can anyone shed any light please?

Autopatch being blocked

It was being blocked for me too. I _WAS_ able to download 1 of the 2 required patches via the manual patch (numeric IP's)... Now, that's blocked too...
LAST time there was a "false positive" (according to CO) it WAS an infected file.
Not updating till I KNOW TQ's got things fixed.
Confidence with the current botting situation makes me leery to update now.
Avast also detected heuristically... unsafe... actions by the most recent patch (Sandbox)

Yes, Avast is blocking CO patches, but it's being inconsistent about it. A friend of mine who also uses Avast has had it report more patches as infected than I have. That could be because he uses the free version and I paid for mine, I guess, but if anything I'd expect the free version to be less secure than the purchased version, not the other way around.

Just turn off Avast when patching. The same thing about Avira except that Avira only blocks the update.
