Regarding Changed repo URL and GPG key:

Please update APT sources list or YUM repos according to instructions in https://repo.avcdn.net/linux-av/doc/avast-techdoc.pdf:

For example:
Code: [Select]
DEB: deb http://deb.avast.com/lin/repo debian-buster release
  => deb https://repo.avcdn.net/linux-av/deb debian-buster release

RPM: baseurl=http://rpm.avast.com/lin/repo/dists/rhel/release
  => baseurl=https://repo.avcdn.net/linux-av/rpm/el$releasever/release

New GPG key can be downloaded from here: https://repo.avcdn.net/linux-av/doc/avast-gpg-key.asc

The old repositories are staying as they are, but new releases will be available only from the new repository.

Thanks for understanding.

Released to public today (Sep 3):

Version 4.2.0

* avast: Enabled FileRep. Added config option REPUTATION_QUERIES to allow disabling.
* avast: Added PACKER_BOMB parameters. Increased the default limits.
* avast: Renamed avast.setup to vpsupdate, avast.setup kept as a symlink. (It might be removed later.)
* avast, avast-rest: Added /etc/avast/log.conf, which allows customization of --json-log format.
* Documented possibility of deployment without systemd (e.g. in Docker)

Note that the JSON output (introduced in 4.1.0) is experimental and may be changed in future releases. It was added mainly for internal deployment.
