    They took the weekend off. Plenty of posts about it all over the interwebs. But it is what it is. We are being "protected" by a soon to be two day old definition. Perfect opportunity for someone nefarious.

    Pretty much my thoughts too. Still no change through either the Defender "Check for updates" or Windows Update "Check for updates". Hoping someone else will have either the same thing to report, or that they've received later updates.

    My history with updates has my paranoia showing. AGAIN!
    try checking now- just downloaded a fresh definition

    Mine updated on its own. It is Monday in some parts of the world. Back to work for the Definition issuers.

    Mine didn't download through Windows Update for some reason (I have it set to notify and not download automatically). It updated on its own.
