Norton not updating virus definitions
Hi Mehul Patel: I can confirm that 20170408.004 was the last IPS Definition set delivered to my system until 20170414.001 was delivered today.I checked my security history and noticed that my IPS driver IPSEng32was downgraded today from 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.1242; my IPS engine was also downgraded today from 126.96.36.1994 to 188.8.131.522.------------ 32-bit Vista Home Premium SP2 * Firefox ESR v52.0.2 * NIS v184.108.40.206 * MBAM Premium v2.2.1 I still haven't received the latest v20170417.001 IPS definition set that was just added to the Virus Definitions & Security Updates release history so I have no idea if this rollback has fixed any of my IPS-related issues.Hi Mehul Patel: I'm certain I checked the Virus Definitions & Security Updates twice this morning and confirmed that the latest Network-Based IPS definition set (not the File-Based SDS definition set) was listed as v20170417.001, so it must have been changed to v20170414.001 since then.I believe the IPS updates are small with only 1 or 2 fixes and Norton may wait a few days to release them. Everytime, whenever updates are released, the updates have many fixes and detections added, only sometimes only engine updates are released. In this new machines the Definitions folder did not contain Virus Defs folder but after Live Update this folder was created and was empty. The Definition I mentioned in my previous post was 20170408.002 which happened at 13-4-2017 2035 IST The update happened now at 14-4-2017 0024 IST was although an old one 20170408.004 I also got 20170413.001.As you can see they released 20170408.002 on 4-0408.004 on 4-10. what I am mentioning is happening even in a brand new machine with new Norton Security installation. I had raised this same problem about many month back when the SDSDefs system was started. See also https://community.norton.com/en/comment/7134391. IPSDefs come almost everyday except on Weekends and Holidays.
Now it is 2 updates on the same day, that means Norton/Symantec seems to be working on it, but don't know if the actual problem is solved or not to finality.
As you can see they released 20170408.002 on 4-0408.004 on 4-10. They would not release each update but would test them and eventually pick the one to release.
That site showed each update and what it fixed and at the top it would show the release version. It is the same for all Norton Products not only N360 and it is the same on the US site too.
