Due to the fast growing amount of malware out there in the wild our
virus definition files grow fast as well. We monitored the situation
with our Updates very closely. We realise that users of the free Avira
AntiVir Personal had issues fetching the Updates in time recently and
did come up with a few ideas how we could solve the problem and to
better satisfy the needs of our users.

Two of the results are getting realized today: First, we switch from our
current virus definition files (called iVDF) to a new format called
nVDF. iVDF consists of 4 VDF files, while nVDF uses at least 32 files –
we need to transfer less data for updating our virus definitions
effectively in the future.

Time will tell and hopefully it will be effective.
Thanks Avira,

It's been working great on my free Avira since the change.
Thanks again,

Same here, but then again I wasn't the kind to worry overmuch about
*late* updates due to overwhelmed servers.
