Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 for Mac


Can a license violator replace antivirus databases?

Back to "General Info"
2012 Jan 23 ID: 4596

Applies to Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8.0 for Mac

A license violator can download antivirus databases from Kaspersky Lab website and copy them into the folder where Kaspersky Anti-Virus keeps its antivirus databases, but they will be rejected by the application. Each antivirus database has a unique digital signature verified by Kaspersky Enpoint Security when accessing databases. Kaspersky Anti-Virus will not use a database: 

  • if its digital signature does not correspond to the signature assigned by Kaspersky Lab;
  • if your license has already expired, and the antivirus database has been released after your license expiry date.
