10 = 2010
07 = 7nd months of the year
05 = day

The definitions tell it self if its up to date. ;)

Nice one. I never saw that logic in the number of the definitions.

Numbers of definitions tell?
This was discussed a lot in the past...

1. There are a marketing issue involved. Companies estimate the number of viruses by high.
2. There are different counts possible: variants, etc.
3. There is not an international rule for virus naming, so same virus could be consider one or more by other company.
4. Scanning settings are very important.
5. Active viruses (ITW) are really more important then the whole number.
6. Generic signatures and heuristic detections cannot be really counted as 'virus detection'.

Well, etc. etc.
Trust avast!

Many things are detected under same names.
http://www.avast.com/eng/vps_history.html only lists new names.
The number of "definitions" also counts the -gen detections somehow (Trojan-gen, ...) - that are not shown on the history page.
You can say that the history page shows only new detection names, not new detections.
The best things in life are free.

the number of definitions increases with the update version, every day, so as I had what I said, and it's the same as what you had, and as I had it on the day I mentioned it, i.e. yesterday (10-07-05-1), it must have been up to date ;D

I have one question. Are outdated and obsolete definitions removed in the updating process?
