Is anyone else getting this?
I'm getting the same. My guess is that it's an incomplete definition file on their servers and it will be fixed soon.
Yes, I'm having the same problem too
OK thanks. I thought it might be a server problem.
Same here, Incomplete update.
First: I don't have SAS installed.
But I had a look at https://www.superantispyware.com/definitions.html
At the moment I see there these definitions:
I can manually download from there SASDEFINITIONS.EXE version 14014.0.0.11826
But, of course, that doesn't have to mean that there isn't temporarily something wrong with it.
Checksums of that file:

I had a look at their forum. Not long ago the same issue was there posted.
It did happen to me a few days ago as well but I thought they'd fixed it as it was fine for a while. It's still happening for me today, so I'm guessing they haven't fixed it yet. It's been 17 hours since the last successful update.
A few minutes ago there was a reply posted at that SAS-forum by an admin, SUPERsupport:
In the meanwhile I noticed new info about definitions at https://www.superantispyware.com/definitions.html
It must be fixed because I just ran it and no problem.
No problem here either.
Fixed for me now too.
Just curious- why do you guys use SAS?
Great Cookie Eater!
Yeah, seriously good for tracking cookies.
I figure I paid for it many years ago so why not use it?
Besides, it finds a tracking cookie once in a while.
I paid for a lifetime license many years ago, and the last time I tried to use it (probably 7 years ago) it informed me that my license was invalid. If I thought it had good detection in some category other than cookies I would try to resolve the issue. Maybe some day they will have good detection, and it will be worth the trouble of working the problem out.
10 years ago it saved my PC from a virus I got while AVG was installed.
Then I moved to Comodo and I have no longer had any infection
Interestingly, about 10 years ago it saved my laptop from a trojan I got while Norton was installed.
Then I moved to Panda, MSE, Panda, Avast and finally back to Panda and I no longer had any infections either.
Thank you for bringing that to my attention. I have three lifetime licenses that I'm not using that I'll have to install to see if they are any good. Using the Free Version now. One was on my Win XP computer that I no longer have. Should be interesting to see if they are still valid.
