Number Of Signatures - Steadily Decreasing

Question

Hello,

 

I've noticed over the last month or so that on every Definition Update, the number of signatures is steadily decreasing. As I write this, I'm now at 11039556, whereas about 6 weeks ago it was well over 12000000. Just today alone I lost about 50000.

 

If this is normal, then that's fine, but thought I'd ask incase there was anything wrong my end.

 

Thanks

Mick

Hi Mick,

 

It's possible that definitions have been rewritten, it's common to merge similar definitions and let one definition detect many more threats. It's necessary to keep the number of signatures down, otherwise the update process etc. will be too slow.
