Anybody want to guess what the ...

:- One Microsoft Security Bulletin affecting Windows Live OneCare, Microsoft
Antigen, Microsoft Windows Defender, Microsoft Forefront Security for
Exchange Server and Microsoft Forefront Security for SharePoint. The highest
Maximum Severity rating for these is Critical. These products provide
built-in mechanisms for automatic detection and deployment of updates. Some
of these updates may require a restart. "

is about?

The line,

"These products provide
built-in mechanisms for automatic detection and deployment of updates"

makes me guess it might affect the updating thru WU/MU process.

Hey Engel, this might put you out of a job ;-)

Anybody at the MS WD tech group want to give us a heads up?

?:)

Tim, your guess is that Defender will only be updated auto or check for
update and not thru WU - MU ?

Maybe Joe Faulhaber and team are answering someones request to that question:
What would like in Defender?

Sorry Ron,
Didn't quite get your meaning.

Are you saying that maybe Joe and the team are answering a request that some
of us made in the series of posts "What would like in Defender?" or are you
asking me what I would like to see in Defender and that I should post it?

?:)

I have similar numbers--maybe a few more, and I'll patch them all asap.
Actually, as things go, I'm allowing AU to do the job with greater
frequency, but I'm not testing--just patching. I haven't been badly bitten
by a patch since NT days--so my feeling is that the odds are better going
with the patches, than waiting to see how long it takes the malware folks to
reverse engineer.

Relax Robin !! You must develop more faith in the way MS applies its patches
and take the plunge ;)

22 comps or not - on the one hand I can understand there can be nothing more
embarrassing than telling a client his computers aren`t working anymore, BUT,
on the plus side, nothing more gratifying than telling him you can fix it ;))
And so a panic post on here for the Attn of Bill S in the meantime.
Hopefully, when you do (fix it) they will think you are a Genius !! Not
always good for business but great for your self esteem and learning process
;)) But Hey!! It wasn`t your fault in the first place. You were just doing
what MS was telling you to do.

lol so true
I just finished doing them today, and I did them all remotely with
logmein.com
btw logmein.com you can get the "free" version totally free. it is 256bit
encrypted, works great- I have it on 22 computers. The only thing is you
cannot transfer files from one computer to another but I do not need it for
that purpose. I use it for updates, scans and when my client is having a
problem they can "show me it" without me having to first make an
appointment. I can just go to the web on one of my 5 computers and see what
is going on.
