We present an update of our lattice QCD study of the vacuum polarization function using O(a)- improved Nf = 2 Wilson fermions with increased statistics and a large set of momenta. The resulting points are highly correlated and thus require a correlated fitting procedure. We employ an extended frequentist method to estimate the systematic uncertainties due to the momentum dependence and to the continuum and chiral extrapolations. We present preliminary results of the leading order hadronic contribution of the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon (aHLO μ) at the physical point for u;d; s and c valence quarks.
