Automatic updates

Updates of the virus database are another key need in virus protection. Avast! is usually updated at least 3 times a week (even more frequently during virus outbreaks), providing you with the most up-to-date definitions to efficiently protect your system against the latest threats.

Virus chest

The Linux version also has a chest directory where suspicious files are stored. These files can be deleted, or it is possible to work with them later. It is also possible to submit the files to our virus lab for further analysis.

Any Linux distribution (x86 platform only) with GLIBC version 2.1 or higher and pthreads libraries installed
