Symantec Endpoint Protection Client. What's the latest version, latest virus definition, and how important are the updates?

Seems most important to have the latest virus definition less important what SEP version you are running, correct? What are the major exploits presently?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I would think that the latest definitions are more important yes, unless exploits exist that would specifically target older versions of SEP.

Thanks Zshaver! Are you aware of what SEP versions have exploits? Or, could you point me where to find that information?

Thanks.  Seems like the articles are saying anything below SEP 11 RU7 is exploitable.  Is that true? I wasn't sure what the RU stands for.  My versions look like this:

11.0.5002.333
11.0.6200.754
11.0.6005.562
11.0.7000.975
11.0.4014.26
11.0.6100.645

None of these would be secure then?

Yeah it looks like no exploits have been found above RU7.
RU = Release Update

11.0.7000.975 is RU7 released in October of 2011
