Still much as this morning. Latest virus definition 191015-6 and streaming going into 1910186_stream. So probably still not working properly.

It would be nice to get a report from Avast before the weekend on progress and when everything should be back-to-normal.

So, in the spirit of fairness , how difficult would be for an Avast! employee to post here what happened,  how are they going to solve the issue and the time frame for the solution....

Pretending that nothing happened and maintaining silence is not an answer...

No one is pretending that nothing is happening or maintaining a silence.

Hi,

We are aware of the issue and it is being worked on.
Please note that streaming updates are working though and you are protected.

So, why bother with VPS updates if we are protected by streaming updates???
Let's eliminate VPS updates all together...

Yep. Same here. It was automatically (at least in my case):

- 191012-6 (from 12.10.19)
- 191015-6 (from 16.10.19)
- 191018-6 (from 18.10.19)

But still... it would be nice - to see the current state, of the "stream update", in Avast menu. Not only in the folder.

Didn't have to do anything, it was there shortly after I checked my system, but according to the date stamp for the folder it arrives last night at 21:58 UK local time.  And I have had more stream updates this morning.

What I also noticed is the update to the aswdefs.ini file at the same time last night as VPS 19101806.

Also, I noticed the C:\Program Files\AVAST Software\Avast\setup\servers.def file was updated this morning at 9am UK local time.  This may well be more important.
