Rootkit Data Base

Recommended Posts

How often is the rootkit data base updated?  The reason I ask is that Malwarebytes just completed a scheduled threat scan and I peeked at the scan log.  The log says the data base is one of the March 30 versions (2015.03.30.10) but the rootkit data base is still from March 26 (2015.03.26.01).  But when I check for updates, Malwarebytes tells me none are available.  This is the paid version and is the latest build.

The anti-malware database is updated 8-15 times per day.  The anti-rootkit database is updated when required.  I have never seen a specific schedule for it.  Someone asked this question last week, and while I don't recall the exact date of the anti-rootkit database that was reported then, yours is newer than that one.  Bottom line is that its fine, and appears to be updating properly.
