Re: Anyone Else getting outdated spyware database again ?
Good to hear that Agnitum is working on it, BUT THAT STILL DOES NOT MAKE ME FEEL ANY BETTER.
Clarifying Some Terms and Differences:
Agnitum Outpost Firewall Pro will be abbreviated as "OFP". We are using OFP and NOT using the Security Suite Pro product, which will be abbreviated as "OSS". The more specific term of "OFP Spyware/Malware DB Updates" will be shortened as just "Spyware DB Upd" or "OFP Spy DB Upd". While both OSS and OFP share some similarities, they are VERY DIFFERENT in both HOW and WHAT they display for their Respective Malware/Spyware/Virus signatures. Malware Updates for OSS have the Spyware DB updated along with their Virus signatures, which means their total number will ALWAYS BE MUCH GREATER. OSS can also have different Malware/Spyware dates, due to combined Spyware ad Virus updates.
ON all my systems, the OFP Spy DB Upd is showing the date of 4-28-2012, which is also when the Last Available OFP Spy DB Upd was seen.
Here are TWO (2) Major Reasons I am NOT Happy:
1) The latest OFP Version, termed as 7.5.2 was SUPPOSED to Correct ALL these Spyware/Malware DB Updating problems. When it was released in Feb. 2012 until 4-28-2012, it did so with no problem. Now, this SAME OLD TIRED ISSUE of Ongoing Problems with the Spyware/Malware DB Updating process is still present. This Issue has been PLAGUING Agnitum products for OVER FOUR YEARS.
Is it not time to FINALLY FIX THIS PROBLEM ??
2) The OFP interface has been its Golden (PISS?) Yellow for over 24 hours, with the Warning that "Malware is OUT OF DATE". That just makes ALL Agnitum Users worried. What will really tick them off is when the clock strikes Midnight tonight WITHOUT a OFP Spy DB Upd. Then the Interface will turn RED and start issuing Dire Warnings.
It should be noted that I have forced over 5 updates today, and all run smoothly, except that there is NO OFP Spy DB Upd available. Specifically, I mean that Agnitum's Servers respond, but have nothing to provide.
