    I saw this on one of my systems, heard confirmation from another person I know, and see related posts in the Avast forum @ http://forum.avast.com/index.php. Just days before US tax returns/payments are due, lol. God bless heterogeneous computing.

    I saw a new VPS updater at http://www.avast.com/download-update and gave it a go. It installed OK, I restarted Avast6, and it appears to be working with Engine and definitions version 130410-1. I also see two similarly positive messages in the Avast forum. So perhaps the coast is clear thanks to some fairly fast work by the Avast crew.
