    Just wondering like most other AV's they tell you how many they have in their signature databases!

    Cheers and a Happy New Year to All!

    The number of signatures is completely meaningless - the point is how much malware is actually detected.

    Hi Marcos,

    Well how much malware is actually detected? Is there any sort of number? Then you can close this thread!

    TIA,

    If I said infinitive I wouldn't be wrong because of generic signatures and heuristics. I think we can draw this thread to a close.
