Any content with a date of 1/1/ AM or newer will be purged from the SEPM if the maximum number of definitions revisions has been reached.Since 12/31/09 rev xxx is considered the latest content available to the SEPM, a client will not update to a content revision later than the highest numbered revision available on this date.Below is an excerpt from the Symantec Antivirus knowledgebase, Symantec antivirus, although it updates the same as before, doesn't recognize a date newer than 2009.The fix: release new definition updates, but keep the December 31, 2009 date.

To correct the definition date showing on SEP 11.0.x and SEP 12.0 SBE clients, customers can configure clients to download the latest ‘Virus and Spyware Protection’ definitions directly from Live Update.

Modifying the registry improperly can result in Windows becoming corrupted.

You should only attempt these directions if you have your data backed up and are willing to risk creating additional problems.

This is due to the SEPM server having ‘Virus and Spyware Protection’ definitions with a date of December 2009.

Once patches are available and this temporary problem has been corrected by Symantec, details will be posted to this KB article.
