NAV virus defs release notes?

I thought that virus defs for NAV were released on a weekly basis, but it seem like there have been numerous updates lately.

What is the official release schedule for virus defs for NAV 11 ?

Also, is there a document that lists what has been updated in each virus def update?

If not why not?

MacOS X 10.4.11 PPC

NAV 11.0.2 f35 (standalone app via online download purchase)

LiveUpdate 5.1.0 f36

The virus definitions update schedule was changed to daily in order to better detect the increasing number of threats. As of June 1st, the virus definitions package will be posted daily for all current subscribers. The virus definitions release notes can be found on http://securityresponse.symantec.com.

Our Product Manager Mike posted a message a little while back regarding this topic but I can't find it right now. You can try searching for it.

Okay, I found the announcement from MIke Romo. 

However, http://www.symantec.com/norton/security_response/definitions.jsp  seems to be pretty thin on details for NAV.

Should we assume that the Certified and RapidRelese def info applies to NAV defs as well?

Timothy,

It appears that Response is still working on publishing release notes for the Mac defs. I'll let you know when we have more information.
