Avira Antivir Virus Definition File Update December 19, 2014
Download the Virus Definition File to always keep Avira AntiVir up-to-date
All major antivirus software solutions feature automatic definition updates, in order to make sure that you get the latest virus definitions and stay protected against new threats. Therefore, users don't need to worry about the reliability of their security software. However, manual update is sometimes necessary, for instance if no Internet connection is available.
Avira is one of the big players in the antivirus sector, providing enhanced, real-time protection against viruses, Trojans, worms, backdoors and so on. It actively monitors the computer activity in order to quickly detect malicious programs and completely annihilate threats before the system functionality is affected. However, its efficiency depends on the virus definition information, which is periodically updated.
If automatic updates cannot be performed (for instance, Internet access is not available) or you simply want to initiate the update process manually, Avira Antivir Virus Definition File Update can help you make sure that the definition files of your Avira product are up-to-date.
Once installed, the program generates the fuse bundle archive that includes the latest antivirus engine, as well as the signature and the update control files. The update is incremental, which means that the name of new threats are added to the existing definition list and there is no need to download an archive for each engine and definition update.
The manual update process can be performed for multiple Avira products, including Avira AntiVir Personal, Premium and Premium Security Suite, as well as the Professional, Server, MailGate, WebGate, SharePoint and ISA Server editions of Avira AntiVir.
Effective malware protection is only possible with an up-to-date virus definition file. If you have no Internet connection and Avira automatic updates cannot be performed, you are advised to manually update the signature files at least every second day, in order to ensure that your Avira product promptly detects any new threat.
