Quick Question about DAT

This question is not related to any other issues I have with McAfee

Can you guys tell me what DAT version your mcafee suite is using please?

I ask this becuase I was looking at my mcafee suite and it says I have DAT 5576 and when I checked on Mcafee's website it says 5578 is out. Why is that?...Also whenever I click update Mcafee says all my programs are up-to-date...Why is this?

Again, this is not related to the other issues I have with mcafee on my other computer

RE: Quick Question about DAT

Me too. I think it must have been withdrawn. Not the first time that has happened.

RE: Quick Question about DAT

so how are we suppose to fix this....or will mcafee fix itself?

You've no need to do anything. The next DAT will arrive in due course, when it's released to the servers.

it's 3:06 a.m GMT -5 and my DAT hasn't changed. It still reads DAT version 5576. Creation date April 06, 2009.

I think problems began when version 9.3 of Security Center was released. Maybe it has a bug or something :confused:

I'm still at 5576 of the 6th too so you aren't alone. The updates must have been withdrawn. However, I really think that users shoiuld be notified when this happens....somehow so will bring it up at out next conference call.
