I've a question:
Does Eset delete old viruses from their databases like NAV?
IMO yes, they delete OLD DOS viruses from their databases. Anyway I would also like to read a statement about this from ESET.
I see no sane reason to delete old viruses from databases. What should be this idiotism good for ?
Anyway I would like to hear some words from Eset moderators....
ESET peoples could reply that by doing so they keep their databases small and their scan engine faster etc., as some old dos viruses does not pose anymore a real treat in their eyes (its just a possibility of what they could answer; better wait for their statement)
I would think ESET might consider that type of information is proprietary for several reasons and choose not to respond.
we do not remove any signatures from the database, even the obsolete ones.
Does a new PC that buys NOD32 get "every" signature from the database?
With boxed or downloaded NOD32 you will get databased current as of the respective version. The rest you will have to download with updates. So after updating you will have "every" signature.
