How can i update manually the virus definitions for Avast Free Mac Security? I was only able to find virus definitions .exe installers here.

Thanks!

You can do it from the "Updates" section in the "Preferences".

I think that i was not very clear. I want to manually download the virus definition updates so i can install them on a Mac who has no internet access.

There are virus definition updaters which you can download from Avast, but these only come in .exe files

Are they available as Mac executable files or in any other form which can be installed on a Mac without internet?

Technically this is possible (by downloading the VPS from the repository and modifying some configuration files), but we do not provide a "user way" to do so, sorry.
