Kaspersky Lab has scheduled to discontinue issuing new databases of known threats (antivirus and other) for certain workstation protection software in 2012. Without new databases of known threats an antivirus application loses its capacity to detect and disinfect/delete new malware.

In this relation, Kaspersky Lab recommendation to users of the software affected by this change is to start using newer Kaspersky Lab software as soon as possible.

Information We would like to remind you that there is no additional charge for upgrading to a new application version while your license is valid.

The table below explains the details of the mentioned changes for each affected application for workstation protection along with recommendations on upgrade options.
