Defender is a creature ability that was introduced in the Champions of Kamigawa set as a replace text for Walls, and was added to all walls from there on.

Before this ability, wall's could not attack. However, due to cards allowing wall's to attack, this ability was placed on all walls after the Kamigawa block. Now, just being a wall does not mean that it cannot attack unless it has the reminder text. If a creature simply says "Wall", then it can attack.
