Sep defs not updating

To correct the definition date showing on SEP 11.0.x and SEP 12.0 SBE clients, customers can configure clients to download the latest ‘Virus and Spyware Protection’ definitions directly from Live Update.

Security Response will continue to provide definitions in this manner as a work around until a permanent solution can be provided.

Symantec is aware of this issue and is currently investigating it.

Relative definition age can be determined by the revision number.

While this issue is being resolved SEP definitions are being built outside of the normal build process.

The fix: release new definition updates, but keep the December 31, 2009 date.

Why are the Security Content dates for Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) and Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) not progressing beyond 12/31/09?

On January 5, 2015, Symantec Corporation ended support for version 11.0.x of its anti-virus software, Symantec Endpoint Protection.

This means that virus definitions and security updates are no longer being downloaded and installed through the Live Update feature.

This document will be updated as soon as more information becomes available.
