Antivirus Database Updates

The antivirus databases currently contain 10213773 records.

The last update to the antivirus databases was released at 31 October 2014 at 11:04 (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.

Automatic updating

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:

Optional databases

Starting with version 6, the optional databases do not have to be downloaded separately. For more information, please see more about optional databases.
