Security alert: Databases are old

Holzwurm W/ Alumni Posts: 1 Security Scout

Hi everyone


since a few weeks we receive these warnings:

Product: F-Secure Anti-Virus (OID:

Severity: security alert (5)

Message: Databases are old: the latest database file is 16 days old.


This is correct, because the computers were actually switched off.

but after the computers have been running for a few minutes, of course, the AntiVirus updates and everything is ok
Unfortunately, the message comes but directly after a reboot and there are the updates just not installed.
It would be a shame to simply turn off the warnings, could one not configure the messages so that they are checked at least one hour after the start of the computer?

    Hello Tobias,


    What product/version do you have?

    We'd fixed the issue with sending outdated databases alert after booting up in Client Security 13.11.


    Best regards,
