    Reply by Marcos in that thread:

    Manually trying to update (on two PC's) didn't work; will try later.

    There are other threads at the Eset forum about it, like:
    https://forum.eset.com/topic/3263-smart-security-not-updating-virus-signatures/

    ===

    In the meanwhile virus signature database version 10441 has been released (on 18 Sept or on 19 Sept 2014).
    http://www.eset.com/us/threat-center/threatsense-updates/ says 18 Sept 2014. My update (got it after several manual attempts) says Virus signature database: 10441 (20140919)

    But ... it doesn't mean that those who are aware of the new Forum that were invited via PM's from ESET staff who have existing accounts there - should be posting there //not here//

    Hi SweX,
    Thank you for the quote from Marcos.
    I just had again some problems updating from database 10441 to 10443, for whatever reason. Let's hope things will settle down in the coming days.

    Just a thought on this slow virus signature update thing. Am I right in thinking that if you don't have the latest update you will still be fully protected from the ESET cloud if you are always online?

    To me it looks like the update issue is calmed down now. Hoping things will stay as normal now.
