ABOUT DATABASE AND APPLICATION MODULE UPDATES
The installation package of Kaspersky Internet Security includes databases and application modules. The application
uses these databases to provide the delivery security level:
Kaspersky Internet Security detects the majority of threats using the Kaspersky Security Network service, which
requires an Internet connection.
Kaspersky Internet Security does not detect adware, auto dialers, and other riskware that may be used by an
intruder to compromise the computer or user data.
To get full protection, we recommend updating the databases and application modules as soon as the application has
been installed.
Databases and program modules are updated in stages:
1. Kaspersky Internet Security starts updating databases and application modules according to the specified
settings: automatically, on schedule, or on demand. The application contacts an update source that stores a
database and application module update package.
2. Kaspersky Internet Security compares the existing databases with the databases available at the update
source. If the databases are different, Kaspersky Internet Security downloads the missing parts of the
databases.
The application then uses the updated databases and application modules to scan the computer for viruses and other
threats.
You can use the following update sources:
Kaspersky Lab update servers
HTTP or FTP server
Network folder
Updates of databases and application modules are subject to the following restrictions and specifics:
Databases become outdated after two days.
To download an update package from Kaspersky Lab servers, an Internet connection is required.
