I’m still testing my LogParser fix for AVG log spam and it appears to do a pretty good job. It’s scarey how many visits are being removed from our stats once this crap is cleared out though. I’ve seen one clients stats for a recent day, drop from 14K to 8K so it really is a serious problem, especially if you aren’t even aware it’s happening.
For more information on the user agents used and some background on other similar AV tools, see this LinkScanner, AVG, TrendMicro, 1813 and SV1 post at WebmasterWorld.
