Does seem to be the case that there is a dodgy update out there. None of my machines are able to pull down the latest DATs, as per the time before, when Peter determined there was a bad-DAT push.
Similarly, those with SC9.3 have blank About screens...
it's 19:01 GMT -5 and McAfee Total Protection hasn't updated yet and still shows DAT version 5570 created yesterday.
Seems to be happening again.When i check for updates it
says my def file is up to date but it is still 70 from 3/31. it's 11:00 pm
here so it looks like another bust.http://forums.mcafeehelp.com/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif
11:54 p.m. and still no updates... anyway I still feel more protected with McAfee than with any other AV product, and I have used NIS 2009 (very light but you can notice some poor detection by reading some threads in it's official forum) and I have used KIS 2009 too (today I replaced KIS with McAfee Total Protection in my desktop PC) :)
I hope the updating problem gets fixed soon and it would be even better if the updates are more than once a day wink like Kaspersky or Norton that updates every 5-15 minutes now.
just to let you know that today I got DAT 5572 (never got 5571 though).
Yeah - this appears to be resolved now...!
Marking this as solved. Just an FYI occasionally Avert will miss a DAT number or withhold a DAT for some reason or another, unknown to us I'm afraid.
