Vincent,

I'm not sure that this isn't a question born of utter ignorance, but
I'm curious anyway...

  Why is the vulnerability of a mob something that would change in a
  client-visible patch?  To me, that seems like something that is
  entirely controlled by the server and that the server would likely
  send the relevant data to the client as needed?
