    Mine was updated to 1.249.1159.0 at 06:45:06 17 August 2017 [I guess that 06:45:06 is MS HQ time, it is not my own timezone - the update happened at 10:05 British Summer Time {GMT+1}]

    All times shown in Defender are in your local time zone. This can lead to confusion when people from different time zones quote the creation time they see for Defender updates. This is perhaps more clearly demonstrated if you use the old Defender UI which (unlike the new Defender) includes the date and time I last checked for updates. The old UI is still included in the Creators Update: Create Windows Defender Settings shortcut in Windows 10

    Here you can see that the check for updates that I made just before midday UK time found definitions 1.249.1164.0 created three and a half hours earlier. A US user will see the same version number, but with the creation time expressed in their own time zone.

    Bree,

    Yes, I also checked it using the old UI when I first came across this strange Last update entry in Windows defender security centre, an entry that is effectively now just a repeat of the Version created on entry. I appreciate that the old UI shows a sensible time for when the last update was done [checking it is more convenient than looking in Event viewer for the same info - System log, Event source WindowsUpdateClient, Event 19].

    All the best,
    Denis
