Sonicwall Security Service questions

We have NSA 250M Sonicwall with Security services(Anti-virus,intrusion prevention) until 8/23/2016. It expired a week ago.

My question is what happens when the license expires? Does it automatically pass virus and intrusion attempts pass through or  does it just not  download new definition files and continue working with existing definitions?

"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.

When your licenses expire, the machine essentially just becomes a stateful packet inspection device. Everything is still logged, judgements on what would happen are shown, but everything just passes through.

IP Spoof is part of the code, not of IPS.
Without Security Service active / licensed it will indeed not block intrusions or viruses.
