Trojan.Bankpatch.C!inf - Certified Definitions

A few questions:

01. Why was this Detection just Added on February 04, 2009 to the Certified Definitions when it was Discovered on August 18, 2008?

02. Why did the Weekly Certified Definitions get Released on August 19, 2008, and yet the Daily ones only got Released on February 04, 2009?

Hi Floating_Red,

A New Variation of the orignal threat may have been discovered and added later on, and then was also added to the daily definitions. This will happen from time to time.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

So, would this Detection just be Added to the Weekly Updates Products, or would it be Released for all Norton Products with Anti-Virus Component when the Weekly Update was Released?

Hello Floating_Red,

All of our AntiVirus products would have gotten this update.

i truly support what tim says...norton is just great...very powerful antivirus..detects every threat..many times an update is released later on for more variables of the current threat..so it is better what symantec is doing.analysing first and then releases for public...i truly agree with symantec....i am happy with norton.......

Hi, Tim,

Which brings me to the point: Why was the Initial Daily Certified Definitions Released not the same Date as the Weekly Update?
