When you get MSC 12.1 you will also notice that there are no longer any DAT's shown in About > VirusScan and this is due to a new engine that updates differently.

I have seen that the incoming events log has a lot more entry´s then before.

600 in 24 hours

Mine too.   It's even started logging my own router's activity.   At least Incoming Events are blocked and are nothing to worry about.

i am a bit worried about the incoming events log.

On monday a have 600 events blocked and after the update only like 20 a day.

I keep thinking is my firewall working ok.

It's due to a change in logging procedures to save space on users' drives as the logs were really getting out of hand IMHO.   The software's protecting abilities haven't been reduced in any way.   That's what we've been told.

What version of SecurityCenter is yours?
