    Hello board,

    i use Avast! (pro) and i am happy with it.
    However i saw a strange thing lately....

    If i check my about Avast! info it says i ahve loaded the latest virus defs with number 0642-2 (today is 18th Oct.)
    However if i look at theAvast! website it says they have given out the number 0641-5 as latest.
    also on http://www.dozleng.com/updates/index.php?act=calendar
    the latest number was 0641-5.

    Can anyone confirm this??

    Maybe it is something regional?? (I live in germany)

    regards,

    Paradutch

    OOO mmm well...apparently you didn't read my posting carefully Rejzor.
    I did also read the Avast! site. I just mentioned the other site because there you can say nearly ALL known AV programs and their updates.

    On the site you mentioned also was this as latest:
    VPS content over past month

    * 16.10.2006 - 0641-5

    Win32:Warezov-LM [Wrm]
    ********

    My questions however was....WHY my Avast! (latest pro version) says it has loaded VPS 0642-2...o_Oo_O??

    Releasing of the virus database updates has "higher priority" than updating the history page. So, it can take a while (after the virus database is released) before the web page is updated as well.
