Option for “Windows Defender antimalware platform” updates

Postby snruebes » 16.02.2018, 15:51

Dear WSUSOffline Update developers,

It looks like “Windows Defender antimalware platform” updates (e.g. KB4052623) are not covered by WSUSOffline Update but there is the option to "Include Windows Defender defintions".

Why are these platform updates not included too?

Many Thanks!

It looks like this update is not listed in the Microsoft catalog (wsusscn2.cab), most likely because it's not a security update.

But according to Microsoft it should:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/hel ... e-platform

-it was already released approx one month ago and still not available in WSUS / MS Update - I assume because Windows Defender Updates are handled differently?

or did they simply forget to add it?

The whole Windows Update becomes messier and messier. It looks to me like Windows Defender team does not talk to Windows Update team and they do not have a common comprehensive strategy - everyone does its own thing and the customer stands in the rain and needs to guess how all this should work together (if it really can).

Absolutely annoying!
