Could anyone assist me with this? 

I have Old anti-virus program version, but my virus definition file is the latest one. 

I get the definitions updated daily. Now I wanted to know am I still at risk with the above scenario.

As I understand the latest virus definition file would surely protect me with the current risks. Would this be 
sufficient with an older version of the anti-virus program running on my system?

Thanks in Advance,



It would be nice to know which AV-solucion and engine is used.
Generally I would say you are at risk...
