Microsoft Pre-release Definition Updates

"Microsoft offers partially-tested pre-release definition updates for download before the fully-tested (released) version is available. These updates are listed below.

You can use these pre-release definitions to clean infected computers. You can also use them to protect computers that are at an immediate risk of infection. The pre-release definition update is not meant for enterprise-wide deployment.

Pre-release updates are explicitly created for malicious software threats. You should not deploy a pre-release definition update if you are not experiencing a threat for which it was explicitly created.

Note: After additional testing, certain pre-release definition updates will be released as regular definition updates. The same binary file that was used for the pre-release definition update may be used for the released definition update."
