    I might be wrong, but I think this is the largest number of threats added in a single update - certainly one of the top few...

    1.1185 had over 3000 or 4000, can't really remember, but it was huge :)

    that was before the (3) type scenario though I think.... so number of entries in the update and number of threats handled are different these days.... at least I think!

    This update (1.1389) seems to have about 70% of the number of signatures added in the biggest update 1.1185. This might be the second or third biggest update yet for NOD32.

    Good to know the guys are hard at work and it shows just how hard the naughty guys are working in creating viruses.

    There are a lot of entries that represent variants (e.g. lots of variants for Win32/TrojanDownloader.Agent). I wonder if one signature simply covers all the variants in some cases.

    Yep. It's large. 1,370 signatures including all of the variants. Update 1.1185 had 3,818 signatures. How do I know? Simple, copy the signatures from the web page, paste them to MS Word, do a find/replace changing the "," to a ",," or whatever you want it to be, then add 1 to the total that MS Word reports that it has found and replaced. Viola! You have a quick means to tally the signatures for the update. Of course, you all knew how to do that now didn't you :)


    Oh yes, good job ESET!

    Such huge updates are usually released just before some major AV testing.
    In this case most probably AV-Comparatives ;) Can't wait for the results:D

    This previous - let's call it medium sized - update has not much to do with the AV-Comparatives test. It might catch 50 or 60 threats, but it was not supposed for this test.

    The bummer is coming soon - so please stay cold (shouldn't be that difficult especially if you're from europe or russia) and keep cool :D

    I suggest to post a poll and the one who guess the number of viruses in the next update gets a prize. :D

    You (ESET Team) are doing an excellent job to improve the detection of NOD32!!!

    And seems that you (Michael Neitzel) are the person responsible of the start of that improvement... ;)

    Thanks for your job!
