Definitions updated SEVERAL times a day?


Recommended Posts

Win 7: Malwarebytes 1.50: I notice that this version updates its definition several times a day ..every day! Can there be that much NEW malwarebyte information in the 'wild' every day that keeps the "code writers' that busy? Believe me, I certainly am not complaining, but it seems like a 7/24 activity that seems to never stop. I am just curious and thankful for the protection at the same time.

Hello and :)

In a short answer, yes there are usually several updates a day. On the average I have seen about 5 updates a day. Malware fighting is a never ending battle. It changes that much due to the new infections they find, false positives they may add to the web blocker, or new IP they add to the web blocker.

They are that busy.... but that is to our advantage....

Thanks Firefox for your answer. I appreciate the clarification.
