    I'd like to know database of what? I thought it wasn't supposed to rely on signatures.

    Behavior Database, Threatfire has to know what behavior is good and what behavior is bad.

    Nope, I think they most of their database is in the cloud. They only send out database updates a few times a week, not every day.

    As I know signatures are there only to name some threats otherwise detection is ONLY triggered by a bad behaviour.

    Database updates generally occur twice a day, usually the TFBL db.
