This blog is primarily concerned with NIS 2007 (and a bit on NIS 08). I have nothing to say about more recent versions.

This blog is more or less dormant (except for occasional comments on related news), and is being left on-line as a historical record and perhaps as a warning to future generations of anti-virus coders.


46 files downloaded JUST TO CHECK for updates

What idiot would design such an update system? They have to download 46 individual files in order to check for updates. Just to check; not to actually update.

46 catalog files

Any normal (intelligent) programmer that can spell the word algorithm (and not confuse it with the ex-VP) should be able to design an update system that is much more efficient.
