Why is KAM showing an invalid Database Date?

QUESTION

Why is KAM showing an invalid Database Date?  (12-31-52, or similar)

ANSWER

The KAM module parses the Database Version information for the Database Date string.  The Database Version should be in the format 912120301;
9- check digit
12- year
12- month
03- day
01- revision for that day

If an incorrectly formatted version string has been passed from the endpoint, it can cause the Database Date field to display incorrectly. 

MORE INFORMATION

With revisions to the underlying MalwareBytes software, we will be able to get the Database Date directly from the endpoint instead of parsing the Database Version string in the next version of KAM.  Until then, the Database Version string should be used as the correct Database Date indication.

APPLIES TO

KAM 1.0, KAM 1.1
