Anybody Else Not Get an Updated DAT?

I haven't gotten a new DAT since the 25th, two days ago. Is this the same case with any of you? I know McAfee has been having trouble lately, but the past week hasn't had any late updates for me.

Neither have I so I wouldn't fret about it. Sometimes they go to issue a DAT and then withdraw it at the last minute, or delay it up to 48 hours sometimes.

Peter I just ran McAfee Virtual Technician at 3:58am Ohio time 1-28-09 and the results show as below:
DAT and Engine OK
Engine Up-to-date
Expected : 5200
Existing: 5300
DAT Up-to-date
Expected : 5506
Existing: 5506

I would think it should show 5508 but it must know McAfee has a problem with latest dats.

An expected result. Thanks for the info. Still nothing at 0615 hrs 28 Jan.

RE: Anybody Else Not Get an Updated DAT?

As of today, the 28th at 9:33 central time, there is still nothing. The situation is still the same on my end.

I haven't either, still at 5506. As amatter of fact, when I select manual update, I don't even get the circular arrow in the systray(Since Sunday.) Related or different issue?

RE: Anybody Else Not Get an Updated DAT?

Not sure whether or not that's an issue or just servers that are overworked. Keep an eye on it.
