Users of ESET antivirus products are apparently currently having problems updating virus signatures. The problem is caused by a cumulative update that strains the capacity of the server. ESET usually only releases small, periodic, updates. But this time so many large updates piled up, that the company decided simply to do all the updates in one fell swoop.

According to ESET, not all customers are affected. Users of ESET NOD32 Antivirus v3, for instance, are off the hook. But users of Version 2.x are likely to notice delays. However, licenced users can upgrade to version 3 at any time for free. ESET assumes that all users now have their regular updates and will ensure that such problems are avoided in the future.
