    McAfee and Virus Total Discrepancy



      I recently scanned a malware sample and submitted the hash to virus total with the following results


      http://www.virustotal.com/file-scan/report.html?id=4241a9371023e7452475117ff1fcd 67262dab56bf1943b5e0c73ff2b2e41f876-1319226526http://www.virustotal.com/file-scan/report.html?id=4241a9371023e7452475117ff1fcd 67262dab56bf1943b5e0c73ff2b2e41f876-1319226526


      It reports the malware as being recognized by McAfee, HOWEVER I am not getting the same results when scanning in my test environment with a more recent DAT file. Virus total used McAfee DAT from October 21st. I am using McAfee DAT from the 27th.


      I'm at a loss as to why a less recent version would catch this malware but not the most current version.


      Any insight is greatly appreciated
