This could be 13 quadrillion signatures and it would not matter. Mentioning signature count is a windows 98 era marketing tactic as back then it actually mattered. Modern malware changes so quickly that signatures more than a month old are virtually useless and once you get to a year out the only thing they hit are samples in malware collections used for testing.
The truth is that obsolete signatures are so useless that we frequently remove them from our database. The only thing they can do is make your scan slower so out they go.
There are exactly 2 statistics that matter when it comes to malware.
1. What can you stop at 0hour
2. If you miss at 0hour can you react faster than the threat can morph
We concentrate on these 2 and simply ignore the marketing fluff that does not translate into protection.
