McAfee do update the DAT files only on all weekdays (Monday to Friday). But do you have any difficulties in updating the McAfee programs?
You're mistaken. I've received DAT updates for Saturdays and/or Sundays (DAT date in the weekend!). But sometimes McAfee skips DAT updates on weekdays (Monday to Friday), sometimes for more than one day.
The product I use is Virusscan Plus, 2009 version.
Note: the weekend DATs/updates are relatively new.
I do agree with your statement. However, incase if we find any new infections then an additional DAT will be send through an update and it will be released on weekends either.
Moreover, as mentioned above, weekday’s updates may be missed out only if we had any kind of server/ technical issues
Those server/technical issues happen way too often !
