Microsoft New Tool to update Defender inside Windows Install Images

Microsoft has announced on Friday another tool that will permit the system administrator to refresh the Defender security package inside Windows installation images (WIM or VHD upheld). 

The new tool was established for big business conditions where workstations and workers are adjusted or mass-install utilizing installation images. 

A share of these pictures is reused for once in a month, and the Microsoft Defender (default antivirus) package discovered inside would for the most part wind up being introduced utilizing an outdated identification database. 

The recently introduced Windows operating systems would in the end refresh the Defender package, however, Microsoft says that this makes a "protection gap" during which structures could be effectively assaulted and tainted. 

Microsoft's new tool is proposed to permit structure heads to refresh their WIM or VHD installation images to contain the latest Defender segment before sending it on their device fleet. 

The new tool was accommodated both 32-bit and 64-bit structures and supports the installation image for Windows 10 (Enterprise, Pro, and Home versions), Windows Server 2019, and Windows Server 2016. 

"These links highlight compress documents protector update-unit [x86|x64].zip. Concentrate the .compress record to get the Defender update bundle (safeguard dism-[x86|x64].cab) and an update patching tool (defenderupdatewinimage.ps1) that helps update activity for OS installation images," Microsoft said on Friday. 

To run the tool, simply run the DefenderUpdateWinImage.ps1 Powershell content. 

This code should be run with Administrator benefits from a 64-bit Windows 10 or later OS climate with PowerShell 5.1 or later forms. Powershell required modules to incorporate Microsoft.Powershell.Security and DISM.
