How do i get the latest VPS? I tried updating virus definitions through avast and it didn't work?

So just open the chest and restore everything that was put in there today? Doesn't it automatically delete things it can't move? How many of those 3k+ files are never coming back  >:(

Thanks for the help.

You can only get the new VPS after avast has released it, just have some patience and wait till they have done so.

Got a reply from vlab: A vps with this detection disabled is already being rolled out
A full vps or just streaming update?
That's all I know, but it sounds more like a full vps update.
Confirmed, should be out in around 1 hour or less.

Still can't see any update here http://download.ff.avast.com/lin/x86_64/vps9/

it is NOT just Avast.....

Avast, AVG, Malware bites, Kaspersky, etc all showing up with same symptoms.
it is NOT your AV. it's a problem with java, or windows, or chrome
still researching

The new VPS (170222-00) should contain the fix. Can you (who are affected) try updating VPS and letting me know if there is still an issue or not?

This was a major f... up!

At least my issue is limited to Opera giving out warnings every 5 minutes. Still hasn't deleted anything or quarantined files on disk (i've checked in quarantine). But i still haven't full scanned or anything. And i'm not going too...

There is no need to scan everything.

Get the latest VPS and use the system as you would normally do, if the problem is not fixed you will soon enough get a new warning.

I scanned my files but everything seems to be in limbo right now? it wont let me 'do nothing' ('apply' is unclickable), but some of these are very important files and i think it's affecting my ability to load websites. Would a rescan when I get the fix make it right?

Anyone here installed Avast on a production server? Hows the server now? XD

As Eddy already pointed out, there is no reason to scan anything. Just update to 170222-00 and see if the popups still appear or not.
