    The only clue I have about this update is that it contains huge improvements for variant detection. That obviously means that there were a lot of behind-the-scenes generic signatures added, which are not displayed in the update descriptions.

    Such large update occurs once per 2-3 months, that's normal.

    Aha, so it's basically a cumulative update right?

    And why so often if there is no need o_Oo_O
    Maybe you would prefer to download each day the whole database ?

    For me, it is better to have only the new added things ... it is how the incremential updates work. less network utilisation, less update servers problems , ...

    Big updates like this one are only necessary few times a year, so why do you want more ?

    A little explanation is welcome ... ;)

    I just don´t understand why KAV has so big updates many times a day...
    Doesn´t NOD32 need this? Just NOD32 heurístics and a few signatures added is enough for a high risk home user?

    I think this quote from Anton will nicely answer that

    Asking this for a friend who is using the trial version of NOD32. I was over at his house last nite and his version of NOD32 indicates that there are no updates and the program is set for auto updates. It shows that he has 1.126 20051025 definitions. He tried doing forced check and it indicates that his program is up to date. Logfile only shows a connection problem with the automatic update attempt but nothing for the forced check.

    So KAV adds junk signatures in its database?

    Well i kinda don't like the word "junk". More a "riskware" than "junk".
    They add all sorts of things in the database that could pose a possible security risk. You can disable that by unchecking Riskware bases...

    But nod32 has protection against riskware too...

    Hello!

    Other AV's update their databases etc. too. What's all the fuss with this update? I am more concerned when ESET does not update their signatures daily.

    You should relax guys and have some real life too :D

    I haven't been infected, app seems just as efficient as always. Why should they? How do you benefit from that? Because you say so even though you don't understand what's involved? Use your noggin', they still update daily, except on weekends unless there is a major outbreak.

    KAV adds a lot of things to its DB that might not be relevant to your setup, like... DOS viruses. Don't turn this into a KAV/NOD update discussion, it's been done before, use the search.

    Paying customers are given preference with updates of such size, as in they will receive theirs first, and when the roll out is complete, only then will the trial version customers receive their updates.

    Hope this helps...

    Cheers :D

    It does but does the "Your NOD32 is up to date message" give the trial version users a slight false sense of security?

    They are none the wiser, besides which they are receiving every new outbreak, like paid users, this is simply a non-critical catch-up group that arrives every 2-3 months.

    Cheers :D
