Microsoft Security Update API -> Get-MsrcSecurityUpdate does not list security only updates

Q: Microsoft Security Update API -> Get-MsrcSecurityUpdate does not list security only updates

Hi,
Get-MsrcSecurityUpdate does not seem to list some "security only" updates in the xml output.
It does list all the other updates including Monthly rollups. Is there a way to retrieve this?
For example, the following updates are missing from the output when the command
Get-MsrcSecurityUpdate -Year 2017 was executed:


4015548, 4014985, 4014986, 4014987 and 4014988.

Preferred Solution: Microsoft Security Update API -> Get-MsrcSecurityUpdate does not list security only updates

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

We use a third-party Microsoft patch management system, unfortunately we have to approve all patches manually. It has become a monotonous task to jump on the security bulletin and manually "take-note" of all of the updates released (KB numbers)
to mitigate that vulnerability. After I take note of all of them, I have to jump on the "third-party Microsoft patch management system" and approve every patch (KB #) associated with that Bulletin. 
I am wondering if there is an easier way to get a list of all of the new Microsoft patches released just for a specific Microsoft Security Bulletin. My current method is just sifting through the Bulletin and copying/pasting every KB number I find that is
designed to patch the vulnerability.
I would assume there is somewhere I can go or a tool I can utilize which would allow me to get the list of all of the KB numbers that need to be approved.
Or Am I out of luck (And just have to sift through the Bulletin to collect the associated KBs)?

I appreciate any and all suggestions/advice/ridicule.

Microsoft Security Essentials updates arrive once or twice a day. This is good. What is not good is a that a record of these updates fills up the History List of Windows Update making it inconvenient when trying to check on other Windows Updates. Is there a way of looking at the Windows Update History without displaying all these Security Essentials updates?

Hi.
Thank you for all your support and security updates for my two Surface RTs. 
They?re great and I don?t want to see them go.  A quick aside? It would be nice for my two Surface RTs and me, if Microsoft had a change of heart and decided to port Windows 10 RT with Office RT for Surface RT and get a few
more years support.  Anyway.
Today one of my Surface RT 8.1 provided the option on shut down, to update and restart, which I did. 
It said it was installing 4 updates.  When rebooted, I went to view update history and found two failed updates and three successful ones for a total of five. 
The first one in the list that failed is this one here below.



Then to get more information, I clicked the link shown there for 4048958 to learn more. 
That took me to the Microsoft Security Update Guide, where I searched for 4048958 and was provide two links for RT 8.1. 
Both links, one for IE11 and one for RT 8.1, go to the KB 4048958 article, which says to get more information, go to the Security Update Guide, which of course takes one back to the KB. 
Not very informative loop I guess.
The second update that is on the list above showing as failed, is the one for Adobe to prevent remote code execution. 
When I am in Windows Update and double-click the failed entry for Adobe, and then click the link for more information, it takes me to a URL that does not show a KB number and provides a link for more i... Read more

This is an inconvenient delay, not anything serious. Running Windows 7, if it makes a difference.

Issue: Microsoft Security Essentials auto-updates block Microsoft Updates until MSE is finished.

Description: I have Microsoft Update (or Windows Update, whichever it's known as in 7) set to automatically check for updates but not download or install without my approval. I do this so I can review what's being updated, (I'm a little wary of Microsoft putting an anti-piracy app in as a "critical" update in the last year or two). Anyways, when I boot up the computer, it checks for updates and alerts me of them.

However, Microsoft Security Essentials also auto-checks for updates upon boot, and if it has an update it will automatically being downloading and installing it in the background. Which is all well and good, except whenever that's happening it causes MU to "fail" updates until it's done updating. Thus, I have to remember to wait until the MSE update is done, then run the MU update.

Question: MSE definition updates are included under "Optional" updates in MU, is there a way to make MSE stop updating independent of MU so I can queue all the updates together? I feel like this would be the easiest way to prevent this annoyance. I don't see an option, and I'd rather put up with this annoyance if the only solution is to put all updates back into Microsoft's hands completely.
 

A:Microsoft Security Essentials updates blocking other windows updates

My understanding of MSE is it will check several times during the to make it has the latest updates. Most GOOD VA programs will do this as there are several releases daily for AV definitions. This is the only way you and your machine will be aware of these releases.

When some of these attacks happen, a definition is released, but as the infection is refined, the the definition must also be refined and/or improved. I use F-Prot on my machines, but I install MSE on the kids and grand kids machines. I have seen as many as 12 releases in one day from F-Prot, this is what is call" being on top of things".

So I would not want to rely on ME being the one to check several times daily on all of my machines to see if a new release has been made.

Hello everyone. Couple days ago i installed Windows 7 on my computer and as usual i checked if there is any updates available. I installed ~140 important updates, but my PC's time is still incorrect. Since my PC location and timezone are set to russian, my timezone settings have to be like (UTC +03:00) Moscow, St. Petersburg, Volgograd (RTZ 2). But still, when i open my date and time settings, i see (UTC +03:00) Moscow, St. Petersburg, Volgograd, without RTZ2 and clocks on my pc are one hour ahead.
I've checked for new updates several times again, but Windows Update still says that there is no important updates available. There is 89 optional updates available, but KB2998527 is not shown in this list. And yes, i did hide a few important updates, but there is still no KB2998527 among them. Below you can see a few screenshots from my update center, if there is any use of them. Any solutions?

Welcome to TSG....

If your car has to be upgraded by the manufacturer of the car you get them, well it is the same thing from Microsoft they are the owners of the operating system and they say that the upgrades should be downloaded.

Enough of what Microsoft wants since it is your computer but still Microsoft's OS I really think that yes you should install al of the updates including service pack 2 these will help keep your system secure and also protect against infections, make the internet connection more dependable and a lot of other things. Ir-regardless of what others say these updates are a necessary thing and really should be done.

Either way the code is injected into your comp, partially due to the lack of dilligence of the user,

Howdy,

I have been putting off downloading IE-8. I have read that many people are having all kinds of problems with it.
I am wondering though if I am compromising my computers security by not doing so.
I currently have XP Home, IE-7, SP-3.

One of my questions is will Microsoft still have security downloads available for IE-7 or will all security updates from now on pertain only to IE-8 ?

I have my computer set to receive automatic priority downloads but there has not been any since 4-25-09.

When I check the download site all I see is IE-8 ready for me to download. Which begs another question. Why did IE-8 not download automatically ? (I am glad it didn't, just curious)

Thanks for your time.

A:Questions About Microsoft Security Updates

Usually larger downloads will notify you but not actually download. That was true of SP3. IE8 is supposed to be more secure. I was using an ISP branded version of IE6 and it was getting awfully buggy. My ISP isn't upgrading so I upgraded to IE8 last week and ditched the branded browser. My computer seems to be browsing faster and no more bugs. So far so good.

I've used Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) for years. It normally updates itself regularly however within the past 30 days it seems to update itself between 4 to 9 times daily. What's going on with this new update behavior?

When I open Update History it shows a slew (up to 9 separate ones) of MSE "optional" updates daily (which I guess become Important Updates by design since I chose to install MSE). I only have "check for updates but let me chose whether to download and install" selected and I only install Important Updates. Each MSE Update is labeled KB2310138 but each does have a unique definition number after it. Each downloads and installs itself automatically even though they are labeled "Optional". Why so many daily and why has this just begun after all these years of seeing maybe 1 per day?

I have a requirement to be able to enter a KB (Article) number and systematically retrieve the supporting details as per 'https://portal.msrc.microsoft.com/en-us/security-guidance' Security Updates report e.g. Name, Date, Severity, Impact etc.
