I think that lower/no definitions update during weekends is a shame, user should consider this when choosing an AV.
Considering the huge nr. of users some AV have it's incredible they cannot employ someone on the weekends and leave millions of user with lower protection.

Here is when different layer protection approach come into... in this case blocking the remote site would be enough to protect the user.
The problem is many AV just have a list of bad sites, no heuristic or other method to detect them.
If MW author change the site or have multiples (some have 1000+) the AV has problems/won't detect them all.

About the lack of Heuristic in Web AV module, not the case of Kaspersky ;) but agree, even in Kaspersky I've noticed that they relax at weekends, prolonging signature updates, also KL VirusDesk final verdict today is taking longer, as usually at weekends...
