Antivirus Database Updates
The antivirus databases currently contain 9766932 records.
The last update to the antivirus databases was released at 18 September 2014 at 13:50 (GMT).
It is essential to update your antivirus databases on a regular basis. If you do not, your antivirus program will not detect the latest malicious programs. Therefore, we release updates every hour to ensure that users are protected against the latest malware.
In February 2005, we stopped issuing large cumulative updates. All antivirus database files can now be updated hourly; this means that we are able to rapidly update the files and users of our products can access these new files.
All users are strongly encouraged to use the integrated automatic download function.
This update module determines exactly which update files your solution needs. This reduces the amount of information you will need to download from our servers.
If you are unable to use the automatic update function, download databases in zip-archives and install them on your computer:
Starting with version 6, the optional databases do not have to be downloaded separately. For more information, please see more about optional databases.
