    {I am talking about the installation file from eset's official site.}

    Hey there is a mystery here - something really odd!

    the valid signature of official v4 final installer(form eset.com) is signed on Feb 6 prior to that of the RC installer.

    how possible?
    If m not wrong a digital signature's date is set by DTS institutions, they set it after they get the file hash and sign it, which means the signed file must exist before its signing date.:eek:

    how can a final be made before the rc is released, is this a signature issue or wrong file, any explanation?

    edit: + someone confirmed that the final versions' signature database 's last update is on Feb 6

    Installed files for 314 are all dated 6th Feb too, 226 RC were all 13th Feb.

    That's a good one... can someone from ESET explain?

    regards

    Hello,

    The Release Candidate was built with earlier code. There were several compiles on different dates for various reasons, which is why the dates are different.

    Regards,
