    How does detection work with avira's cloud?

    I've been playing around with it for a few days now in a VM and have never had a cloud upload/detection of a file on creation or on download.

    However said file will then be detected with a subsequent right click scan with the (cloud) addition on the end of the name.

    So, per say in the even of a malware attack would a file be cloud scanned/detected on execution or just with a right click scan?

    Should be noted I am not running samples in the VM just checking static detection's.

    AFAIK Avira's Cloud protection appears often by execution when the signatures and heuristics bypass.

    It will show a pop-window with a format of ',threat name (Cloud) is blocked'.

    In terms of scanning, Avira Cloud is enforced while the uploading of samples is also appear from execution probably.

    Then cloud detection's will happen when a file is executed?

    @Antimalware18: From the two helpful members provided, it just shows Avira's Cloud protection will work when a suspicious file is detected.

    It does not guarantee for every file at all.
