Over the year's I've gotten into the habit of manually updating Microsoft Security Essentials' definitions three or four times per-day. (By default, it always checked and updated once every day.) Over the past few days, I've noted several definition updates I didn't remember downloading. Today, after some extensive Googling, I spotted this:

Of course, god forbid Microsoft would have issued a statement about this to alleviate the fears of people like me who are prone to panic over every little thing... 8-[

As a follow-up, MSE no longer auto-updates multiple times per day. From what I can tell, it stopped doing after the last Patch Tuesday (Nov. 8th) updates.
