On May 27, 2020, F-Secure will trigger a full database download for the Capricorn engine. The expected filesize will be 41-44MB.

This update will contain revamped signatures and models which are expected to minimize the database file sizes afterwards.

With the default product settings, this update will happen automatically. This will affect F-Secure's Windows, Mac and Linux EPP products, both for our Consumer and Business users.

Trivia: As an analogy, 41-44MB is typically smaller than the usual Microsoft Patch Tuesday update.
