Avira is not updating
The bad news is that the paid consumer editions (Avira Antivirus Premium and Avira Internet Security) as well the business edition (Avira Professional Security) do have it, and thus are affected.
I used Avira 2-3 years back, before I started to use Avast.
If so from a business perspective this is at best short sighted and at worst suicidal.
With Comodo improving all the time and (finally) the new Avast!
on it's way, ***ing people off now will only kill their ability to retain existing customers and attract new ones later on.
Also, we haven't seen the last of what China has to offer yet.
