Can you say HUGE?
Great work, ESET !!!
Nice! Would be nice to see that everyday or two.
Why on eset home page does it say current version 1.990 20050202
It looks correct to me.
Yes just updated
Can anyone tell me where I can check the size of the signature updates?
Eset folder, nod32.000
Good Lord! That's huge! I'm still on 1.990 and clicking update shows no updates. Just a matter of time I guess.
A few users have seen this, though to this point they have been using the Trial version. I'd say wait and see what happens over the next 24hrs...
WOW over 1300 samples for one day!
Probably somebody sent virus collection lol
Could this indicate that NOD32 uses automatically created signatures (i.e., not hand-picked signatures)?
I'm not sure whether I understand you right (sorry if I misunderstood you), but are you still using NOD32 Version 1?
In that case you might read this announcement from ESET:
Eset to discontinue the update of NOD32 Version 1
Jan 5 th 2005
Eset, producer of NOD32 antivirus, announced today discontinuing of virus definition updates for its product NOD32 Version 1.

So if you're indeed still using Version 1, I would strongly advice to upgrade to Version 2 !!!
Not quite Jan, the update virus signature number was 1.990 it is now 1.991
Oops, thanks Craig; I should have read better
No worries at all
Looks like last minute cramming for AV-Comparatives' February test if you ask me
Good luck Eset. I hope you can beat Norton this time
When you look at the sigs you will see that the vast majority are different versions of recently released pests
A lot of them are malicious programs/adware/spywares which I am very glad to see Eset targetting so well
Well a friend of mine using for 2 days now the trial version would be more than happy to be able to update.He keeps getting the message your version is already updated and he has only the 1990.Not a good image for the" best AV in the world" unfortunately
That is a very common problem Claire and isn't usually Eset's fault
I have the same frequently as My ISP uses a cache system and it retains the old update in it's cache rather than letting you fetch the new one from Eset's servers directly
I get the same problem with NOD, TDS and Adaware and have to use a specific proxy when updating to get round this problem
Thanks for your answer.
Is there by any chance a way to download an update file and manually install it?
most of these are...
Obsolete DOS-days viruses
Win 3.x viruses
Hacking tool [famed denial of service tools, DCOM exploiters, some IIS attackers, flooders, nukers....]
A number of entries marked "PSW" - I"m stumped.
PSW are those trojans that stealth passwords and send it to the author of the malware.
i have the same problem , i cant update to 1.991 .
i am using trial version.
Programm sais that i am "up to date " but i have 1.990
Can i try something to get last update?
I couldnt understand what dvk01 said about proxies.
Can somebody explain ?
Sorry for my questions but i am newbie...
