Almost 30Gb of updates downloaded each month

I have 3 servers that are running Forefront Server Security and I tell one of the servers to download scanner updates from http://forefrontdl.microsoft.com/server/scanengineupdate (default).  The other two servers get their updates from the first server.
I have only enabled the scheduler for the products that Forefront is using but still the first server is downloading about 1 - 1.5Gb from http://forefrontdl.microsoft.com/server/scanengineupdate each day.
I don't believe that it is normal.
Any ideas what could be causing this heavy downloads?

The problem was Kaspersky Antivirus, it was downloading about 600Mb of updates each day.
Changed that Engine for another one in the list.
