I just joined and already have a question.
How often does the CAVS database or signature get updated?
When I update it says I have the current version. What about the database?
Should this not be a daily or weekly update, since new virus’es are coming out daily?
Thanks for any feedback.

Hi and welcome,
Signatures will be added to the database more frequently when there is a virus outbreak or if there is a high risk virus that needs to be added. It is quite normal to go for a couple of days without seeing an update to the database. In high risk / major outbreaks you will see updates up to three times a day.
Seen as CAVS is reporting it is up to date, then it should be. Don’t worry.
If you open CAVS and click the ‘about’ button>>then ‘version information’ the database version should be 188.8.131.52.
CAVS regularly checks every hour (default settings) for new updates.
