IPS Definitions

Hello Norton/Symantec

I have noticed that my IPS definitions have been reported slightly differently the last couple of days. For example, today's setting shows  20180329.065. It used to show up as 201803329.001  Has there been any change to the definitions themselves or just as they are being reported? This is a change that only I would notice most likely. This started on 3/27.

I noticed that the dating is now similar as the Identity reporting. That one changed a while ago.

Have a Good Night and

Re: IPS Definitions

Norton produces various def files multiple times each day and increment the .xxx each time. I believe they update the online data base with each file but only update the PC version a few times each day. Looks like they had 65 IPS updates on 0328.
