Avira VDF Update
Download the latest virus definition files and update Avira antivirus. Because Avira updates its detection files silently and automatically, most of our users never need install their own virus definition updates (VDF). Performing an Avira manual update is only necessary under special circumstances, e.g., initiating an Avira VDF update without an internet connection.
