Symantec endpoint definitions not updating

Below is an excerpt from the Symantec Antivirus knowledgebase, Symantec antivirus, although it updates the same as before, doesn't recognize a date newer than 2009.

It is important to recognize that although new security content updates will show a date of 12/31/2009, they will contain up-to-date content.

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.

Since 12/31/09 rev xxx is considered the latest content available to the SEPM, a client will not update to a content revision later than the highest numbered revision available on this date.

Definition builds for all other products remain the same.

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.

Symantec Live Update automates virus definition distribution.
