    Czech antivirus maker Avast has taken the extreme step of disabling a major component of its antivirus product after a security researcher found a dangerous vulnerability that put all of the company's users at risk.

    The security flaw was found in Avast's JavaScript engine, an internal component of the Avast antivirus that analyzes JavaScript code for malware before allowing it to execute in browsers or email clients.
