Update Servers under heavy load

antivir_okThe update servers for our free Avira AntiVir Personal are currently under heavy load due to a huge update that gets delivered. Even if we are delivering with 8 GBit per second – whereof up to 1 GBit per second is used by IPv6 traffic alone! – this results in a slow update process for many of the free AntiVir Personal users. The situation should get better over the weekend, it already got better this night for a few hours.

We already increased bandwidth and made further optimizations to our servers. Also we’re working on a permanent solution to better serve the users of our free Avira AntiVir version – this may take a few weeks though.

Users of our Avira AntiVir Premium and Avira AntiVir Professional products are not affected by this issue.
