Welcome to the Norton Community Forums.
I gather your question is about Norton Mobile Security and the Anti-Malware
New information being Anti-Malware application definitions are updated by
the NMS applications LiveUpdate. Which runs in the background at scheduled
times being daily, weekly or monthly. Or the user can run a manual LiveUpdate.
LiveUpdate can be found in the Menu options for the NMS application.
And to see the history of Anti-Malware definition updates the user can
select Menu then Activity Log to see when the updates took place and
also the version numbers of the updates to the Anti-Malware feature.
I hope that info is what you were after, if not please post back in the
forum with some more info in regards to your question.

thanks for the response!
I was moreso wondering just out of curiosity how you at Norton/Symantec actually gather information about new malware as a company for all of your products?

It's all about samples. We grab sample submissions of APK's for analysis. We work on enhancing this process to ensure that we are ble to react quickly.
