Re: McAfee Signature Testing Mechanism

Hello @Sharadkrishnan,

Thank you for reaching out to the McAfee support community.

The DAT's for the AV would be released on daily basis and in perspective of Exploit prevention content,
For Windows (EP content and HIPS content) - Once a month.
For Linux - Quarterly once

Kindly refer to McAfee Exploit Prevention Security Content Releases

Also, to understand the mechanism you may review the below KBs, you will get the clarity. This KB also contains multiple KBs inside it under additional information you will find the same.

Hope this helps.
