Event ID 2000 — Definition Status

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

Definition, or signature, updates are released frequently and are designed to help protect computers from new threats. Windows Defender should have a definition database that is less than 14 days old. Old signatures can be used but they do not detect the latest threats.
