Get Safe Downloads List last update time and current version

Maybe applescript to authenticate?

osascript -e 'do shell script "sudo /usr/libexec/XProtectUpdater" with administrator privileges'

I think I recall reading some Apple KB article saying you shouldn't use 'sudo' with 'with administrator privileges' (ie. I think your applescript shell script will work without sudo - though I'm not positive on that.)
