Neither my primary Win 10 Pro machine nor a Win 8.1 Pro VM I run have had definition updates since v1.245.730.0 from this past Friday evening (created on 6/9/2017 at 8:31pm). Neither system experiences any errors when I attempt to manually update from Within Defender and neither one appears to have any errors or warnings from Defender in Event Viewer.

Well, I guess they actually just skipped nearly two full days of definition updates. I just received v1.245.766.0 created on 6/11/2017 at 2:46:22pm. Sorry for the paranoia but it seemed very strange to me that definitions would go this long between updates. More often than not, it seems like there's multiple updates per day.

Question about a reference page for definition versions still stands though.

They're calling Defender "Security Essentials" like it used to be, but the definition version is 1.245.766.0:
