Bitdefender 2008 Virus Definitions Description
Bitdefender 2008 Virus Definitions is an installer component that was designed to help users keep their security solutions up-to-date without having to be connected to the Internet. This product works with the following Bitdefender products: Bitdefender Antivirus 2008, Bitdefender Internet Security 2008 and Bitdefender Total Security 2008.
Keeping security solutions such as the ones mentioned above up-to-date can minimize the risk of jeopardizing one’s digital security by implementing the latest signatures and definitions in the host applications, making them more adequate against a wider array of attacks. Since updating the antiviruses usually requires the target computer to be connected to the Internet, lacking a connection can make this task difficult or impossible to achieve.
Updates consist of virus signatures, spam signatures and product updates, each of which has its own significance in ensuring the well-being of your system. The virus signatures are made of databases of patterns that are compared to files processed by the scanner. The spam signatures are rules for heuristic and URL filters that increase the effectiveness of anti-spam services. Last, but not least, the product updates bring new features, hotfixes and scan systems.
Installing the Bitdefender 2008 Virus Definitions update on the target computer requires any of the supported applications to be available beforehand and needs no configuration. Users just need to run the installer, as it detects the products automatically.
