Hi, It's been known for days now that Kaspersky updates its database a few times a day compared to other competitors.
In the photos you can see what I have described, 6 hours and 20 minutes without an update.
In this moment 4 hours and 15 minutes without updates.
What is your opinion about it?
Look the pic.

They don't hurry for signatures..moreover you will be protected with their pro active modules + KSN.
UDS are majority of K detections from what i have seen. Trust me you will be protected whatsoever !

The reported time isnt read from your computer, it is from the Russian time zone and it isnt updated as often as the database itself.

Check the update logs and you will see that Kaspersky actually has been updated, so nothing to worry about ...

Ps: The update frequency is every two hours.

I can confirm this by talking to official kaspersky people at their live chat some time ago.
They simply told me that kaspersky just updates Itself quite differently than other AV's In terms of time.
And that I have nothing to worry about.

Also, during the Update an arrow down shows up in the Kaspersky Icon.
But that's during an update attempt as well. The systray icon can mislead.

I agree with lobo001, let the user decide if they want to be notified or not.
