If Cloud connection is down, then so is FileRep, meaning there won't be any FileRepMalware detections, there won't be any reputation warnings. That seems like a bigger issue than it appears at first.
Indeed.  It sure would be nice to have Avast chime in on this.
There's this forum.  Their blog.  Facebook.  Google+.  And their Web site.  So many ways to update their users and... Nada.

It is now going on 24 hours since the last streaming update. My question is would you feel secure doing online banking or online shopping or doing your tax return online?

The streaming updates are over and above the regular virus definitions updates. When a new virus definitions update is available it also contains the previous streaming updates. So you aren't missing out if the streaming updates experience any issues, you just get them with the regular virus definition updates, just not as quickly.

I'm not sure it's that simple. If Cloud connection is down, then so is FileRep, meaning there won't be any FileRepMalware detections, there won't be any reputation warnings. That seems like a bigger issue than it appears at first...
No Autosandbox of low reputated files / No FileRepMalware detections  :-\

Well I too don't think it is that simple as I don't know if both are dealt with on the same servers.

If client is NOT connected to the cloud, does it even matter which server handles what if you're not connected in the first place?
It's like worrying if an unplugged TV will consume power from a hydro power plant or from a nuclear power plant. It's irrelevant since it's not even plugged into the power grid... same here...

That is the thing, there is no differentiation for the FileRep and streaming updates.web

The only thing we can look at relates to the Streaming updates: nothing about the other cloud related services.

Actually you can.

Security tab, Cloud Intelligence part of the screen. You have Reputation Services there and if you're not connected to the cloud i'd say it's not even working.

I'm also surprised that no one has managed to comment this issue from avast! team. Holidays or not, this is quite severe issue imo.

The avast team should make a statement of the problem and when it will be resolved.  :(

Hi,

I got the reply from head of virus lab : "Can't see anything wrong with the status of cloud. Weird."
