Virus Def Size


I have Norton Internet Security installed on my MacBook Pro, running Snow Leopard. In the past, the size of NAV Virus Defs steadily climbed (presumably because more defs were constantly being added) reaching to about 67 MB/update. Suddenly, in the past few weeks, the Virus Defs have only come to about 53 MB/update. Why the sudden drop? I just want to make sure everything is working properly.




Re: Virus Def Size

There were some recent improvements made to the scanning heuristics, which allowed us to reduce the size of virus definitions. So this is normal, nothing to be concerned about.
