F-Secure Virus Definition Databases The F-Secure download page has definition downloads for Windows, Linux and an update for the rescue CD, but you need to download the fsdbupdate9under the “Manual Update Using fsdbupdate: Windows” heading.
It is therefore urgent to move all Macs to SAV9 by April 2014.
If you have no Windows Server, and can no longer use SUM, this leaves two more possibilities, first you could use the standalone SAV9 installer.
This upgrade will not affect computers that use a departmental update server.
