The V signatures are created by Trend Micro Systems when a major virus/worm outbreak occurs and an emergency update is needed.
The V update could then have been deployed through a Cisco ICS management server.
But, there has not been a major emergnecy outbreak in the past 2 years that has required a special V signature update.
Instead, any signatures for virus/worms in the past 2 years have just been included as part of the standard signature update process and been included in our standard S signature levels without the need for special emergency updates.
Often the vulnerability was already detected by a standard S signature update before the virus/worm began spreading.

1) Many times you can skip to the latest version of 5.x when upgrading Service Packs. In reading the 5.1(7)E1 release notes, you would have found, under the "Required Version" section:
The minimum required version for installing this Service Pack update is
5.0(1) for CLI and IDM users.
This means you can apply 5.1(7)E1 directly to your existing IPS sensor.
2) Each Service Pack DOES contain a set of signatures, current when the Service Pack was built or released. New signatures updates come out about once a week. If you want to run the most current set of signatures, you need to apply the Service Pack and then the latest Signature Update.
3) Your Event Viewer should not change within the 5.x versions of IPS software.
