Yes, you can use the same DAT (V2 Virus Definition Updates) file to update the mcAfee 8.7 and 8.8 versions.

Only McAfee Endpoint Security 10 will requires the V3 DAT.

The V2 DAT files supplied are compatible with anti-virus products that use the version 5400 (or later) virus-scanning engine.

If I am not wrong McAfee VirusScan 8.x uses 5400 or above Scan Engines, so you can use it for both versions.
