Hope Vlk drop some light over these points (WebRep and DNS).

Meaning that when webrep reports that a site is infected, it gets the info in priority from Avast labs and not the users, which I find normal.

Yes, he said they get the info from two sources.
- virus-lab
- users
And I guess the lab has the last word. ;)

To be honest, I don't think that webrep reports any infections?
It sends info only when you push the button... and there is nowhere you can select "infected", or am I wrong with this?

I don't see any way for WebRep to report a site as infected.  Red just means a lot of users didn't like it, hopefully with the content icons indicating why.  Any infection reports I have seen were from Network Shield, since you are blocked from going to the infected site to see what WebRep might think of it anyway.  See http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=75453.msg624461#msg624461 for example.

That was my point: is WebRep using avast infection information of just users votes?

As far as I understood Vlk, it uses only user votes plus information that comes from virus lab which in turn of course gets information from avast community.
But the webrep addon itself (on the client side, transmitting) only uses user votes.

That is the point...

Why? If you have the virus lab information... Why isn't it took into account in the search webpages?

It seems WebRep does not use infection information.
I googled some infected webpages but WebRep says "this site has no rating".

It would be good if WebRep took them into account but I also think Web/Network shield are good enough to protect users from infected websites...
