Because you have to go to their Virus def download page on their website.

That one is daily. While the liveupdate one is only updated once every few
days. Or unless if there is a severe virus.

Subject: [Full-disclosure] symantec inconsistency

Can anyone tell me what Symantec means on their website under 'latest
threats' where it says 'Protection' and it shows July 9, 2004?
ex. W32.KorgoX   discovered - July 9, 2004  protection - July 9, 2004.
If I run a live update, I get latest defs labeled 07/07/2004.  According
to their latest virus threats list I am vulnerable to 4 viruses since
then, why the discrepancy?
I am dealing with a virus right now that is not caught by symantec latest
