MBSA support for Windows 10 and Windows server 2016

Q: MBSA support for Windows 10 and Windows server 2016

Hi,
I am aware that the latest MBSA version available is 2.3 which is not supported for Windows 10 and Windows server 2016. What is the best alternative for MBSA which can be used on Windows 10 and Windows server 2016 to identify the missing security patches.

Preferred Solution: MBSA support for Windows 10 and Windows server 2016

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.)

Hi,
My objective is to run the tool and analyze the security and software patches on server or computer and produce a list of recommended install.
I read that MBSA (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/security/threat-protection/mbsa-removal-and-guidance) only supports up to Windows Server 2012R2.
Is there any tools that support Windows Server 2016 ?
I used WUA and it can't run on some of the computer.
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/windows/desktop/aa387290(v=vs.85)
Then, explore Microsoft Security Compliance Toolkit 1.0 but lack of instruction. Not sure it can do the job or not.

Do you have any recommendation on how I can get started ? Thanks.

Despite the other issues with the .cab files being digitally signed (and not) -- I've discovered that it also doesn't recognize KB3197867 as missing/needed.  

I use another patch management service that indicates that the patch is needed, however the MBSA doesn't show this file as missing -- and therefore it doesn't install.  

This patch is not already installed on my system, and if I download an install it manually it's fine -- but the issue is that the MBSA isn't showing it as missing.

Is this a known issue? Or does anyone else have this issue?

This occurring on both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.

I am trying to add Windows 10 clients to Windows Server essentials 2016. It seem that in order for the server to see the clients I must the clients join the server server Domain. (Currently they are in a workgroup).

It looks like one has to change the Windows10 clients to access the WSE-2016 DNS. So in windows 10 I go to networks, bring up the adaptor setting. Bring up "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IvP4) and instead of "Obtain the DNS address automatically" change it to always get the DNS address on the WSE-2016 (found with ipconfig).
Then within Windows I use ?System?, ?about?, and Join the server DOMAIN. It now works. The client can now see the Server domain.
I can then see the Server files and the server can see the Windows 10 shared files.
There are still problems however.
When I reboot the Windows 10 client. I have a brand new user screen with only some of my original desktop icons showing. Do I have to essentially rebuild up everything on my desktop again!
Question: Is there not a way to have my original desktop appear when I am joined to the Domain.
Second, since there will be times when the server is off I used the router static DNS IP address as the alternative address in the above dialog box of the Windows10 clients. Seems to work since the client can access the internet even with the WSE 2016 off.
Here is my second question. I have a few home laptops as well. If I force the DNS to the server what happens when I travel. ... Read more

I thought it might be a helpful time to remind any remaining users of Windows 8 (as opposed to 8.1) that it goes out of support in a month's time, on 12th January 2016.

From here:
https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/...-windows81-faq





With the General Availability of Windows 8.1, customers on Windows 8 have 2 years, until January 12, 2016, to move to Windows 8.1 in order to remain supported.



I know that there were some changes in the hardware requirements between 8 and 8.1 which affected some hardware - I think some of those folks may have to switch to 32-bit to stay supported, although I'm not sure that addresses all the issues.

But for everyone else on Windows 8, it's time to consider moving to Windows 8.1 (or download the Windows 10 ISO and upgrade straight to that in one go).

Hi All

There's something I've been thinking about recently that I would like to ask the forum for your opinions.

I run a lab at home with about 30 Windows Server 2016 servers. They all have Windows Defender installed and I have a Group Policy which enables/configures certain features like Cloud Based Protection. I never ever browse the internet from any of these servers (I use my desktop with my SUA account for internet activity) and I don't share my servers with anyone else.

What I was wondering is:

To free up memory on my cluster and to reduce disk IO I was thinking of uninstalling Windows Defender on Windows Server 2016 using Powershell as follows:

Remove-WindowsFeature Windows-Defender, Windows-Defender-GUI

Now obviously this would mean I would have no AV/malware on these test servers but since I don't browse the internet from any of these machines the risk should be minimal (note I said minimal as I do accept having no AV has its risks/downside which I accept).

I may keep Defender installed on some servers that have ports open from the internet like my mail gateway (anti spam etc) but besides this I can't think of any other reason to keep Defender installed. All servers are behind a pfsense firewall in different VLANs and have tight firewall rules controlling traffic between them.

I don't have any kind of third party AV/anti malware installed. Everything I download gets checked on my desktop before copying to any of my test servers.

In a recent blog post, Google announced that it intends to discontinue support for Chrome on Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Mac OS X versions 10.6, 10.7, and 10.8 by April 2016 because "these platforms are no longer actively supported by Microsoft and Apple." Google did not release a specific date when for when it intends to discontinue support.
Google notes that current versions of Chrome "will continue to function on these platforms" after support for Chrome is discontinued, but the company encourages users to upgrade to newer operating systems so that they may continue to use the latest versions of the web browser.
Source : http://www.neowin.net/news/chrome-to-drop-support-for-windows-xp-windows-vista-and-older-mac-os-x-versions-in-2016

A:Google to end support for Chrome on Windows XP, Vista OS X 10.6,1 in April 2016

 
Earlier this year, we announced that Google Chrome would continue support for Windows XP through the remainder of 2015.  At that time, we strongly encouraged users on older, unsupported platforms such as Windows XP to update to a supported, secure operating system. Such older platforms are missing critical security updates and have a greater potential to be infected by viruses and malware.
Today, we’re announcing the end of Chrome’s support for Windows XP, as well as Windows Vista, and Mac OS X 10.6, 10.7, and 10.8, since these platforms are no longer actively supported by Microsoft and Apple. Starting April 2016, Chrome will continue to function on these platforms but will no longer receive updates and security fixes.
If you are still on one of these unsupported platforms, we encourage you to move to a newer operating system to ensure that you continue to receive the latest Chrome versions and features.

Developer AVG has recently released the 2016 lineup for its anti-malware applications: AVG Antivirus Free, AVG Antivirus Pro and AVG Internet Security. It brings many improvements to the table and promises better malware protection

The Good:
The firewall quickly reacted to events.

AVG Internet Security light on system resources, even during scans.

We haven't noticed compatibility issues with Windows 10.

It features a self-protection module against hijackers.

It contains numerous advanced configuration settings for expert users.

The Bad:
We haven't noticed any significant changes compared to the 2015 edition of AVG Internet Security.

Casual users will have a hard time discovering how to configure the advanced settings.

We expected better malware detection results.

The automatic response was late in our tests (at file launch).
AVG Internet Security 2016 Review - New Edition, Same AV with Windows 10 Support
 

A:AVG Internet Security 2016 Review - New Edition, Same AV with Windows 10 Support

I do not entirely agree with this article , regarding that they did not notice any differences between the 2015 and 2016 version. here is the official changelog between those two. ofcourse nothing is perfect and they still need a lot of work to do , before they can make their bold statement true ''' AVG wants to become the best av in the industry "
changelog 2016 build 7161 :
BETTER MALWARE PROTECTION

AVG now protects your PC from even the newest malware regardless whether you've got the latest virus database installed. This works thanks to:

REAL-TIME OUTBREAK DETECTION
We've added crowd intelligence to our existing cloud-based Outbreak Detection technology to identify even the newest malware variants and outbreaks in real-time.

AI DETECTION
Uses advanced artificial intelligence on your PC to proactively identify malware samples that haven't yet been catalogued by our AVG ThreatLabs team.
AI Detection is being constantly trained through telemetry data from our users.

IMPROVED ONLINE SHIELD
We've improved this feature with cloud-based detection to identify dangerous downloads faster than ever.

WINDOWS 10 SUPPORT
AVG has worked on Microsoft's latest operating system from day 1.

SMB SUPPORT
AVG again supports remote administration of stations with SMB licenses.

OTHER IMPROVEMENTS
New setup for all applications: faster and easier navigation, attractive graphic design.

Support for Windows XP and Vista will end April 2016 - Emsisoft BlogStatistics today show that both Windows XP and Vista usage dropped dramatically since then. Among our customers the percentage has already dropped below the ten percent mark, with a continued trend downwards. As a direct result, we decided not to renew our extended support for Windows XP beyond April 2016. We will drop support for both Windows XP and Vista in the next major version of all our products, which is scheduled for release in 2016.We fully understand that in many circumstances users have no way but to continue using XP or Vista, either due to computer upgrade budget restraints or because some old hardware devices dont come with drivers for newer operating systems at all. In these cases, we are offering partial refunds for any license time users cant use due to the changed minimum system requirements.

I needed to install .NET 3.5 on Server 2016 but have hit all of the roadblocks and need help. Here is what I have tried so far...

I tried to add the feature via the server manager but it ended with code 0x80070002. I did have to provide a path to the sources\sxs folder for the cab file which I expected but that didn't help.I tried using the DISM powershell command to add the feature, both using the source location and also using /All so that it downloads the files from Windows Update. The end result was the same as #1 attempt - 0x80070002.I made sure all updates for the OS have been applied and that updates for 'other Microsoft products' was checked. this made no change in the error.I checked the installed packages via powershell and it shows 3.5 as removed, which again is expected for Server 2016 as they intentionally left it out but provided the cab file in the install media.I have executed a clean sfc /scannow with no errorsI have run a clean dism package commandI have tried installing under a fresh admin user profileI have researched for around 3 hours on the forums so I look forward to the various input
I have uploaded both the DISM and CBS logs. I started fresh with both logs so they contain only details related to a single attempt t install via the server manager.

Dear IT Pros,
I have 2 questions that need your help and professional advice.
1) Does Microsoft has a tool to check whether a patch (KB) was superseded by another KB? In my case, I'm trying to search whether this KB4022715 and KB4025339 (both of this KB was released in 2017) was superceded
by another KB. This is because a security consultant has advised us to install both of this KB to prevent vulnerabilities but since it was released back in 2017, I suspect there must be a newer KB that supercedes it
2) Can advice what KB I need to download regarding this 2 bulletin ID CVE-2017-5715 and CVE-2019-11135? Can't seem to find it after much googling

Hi, we are becoming more and more frustrated with the forced windows updates. These may help home users but professional products like servers are not for everyday users and sometimes require alot of configuration to get legacy applications to work.
Windows will at times force updates no matter what we choose in respect to disable them. It is NOT up to Microsoft to determine if or when the servers I am responsible for need to be patched. Any reading and research we have done here has only yielded the
ability to prolong the updates. Once installed over 50% of the servers give an endless spinning circle and require restore or rebuild, this has become unacceptable and has forced us to start testing our applications with different Linux flavors.

Is there a way to STOP the updates indefinitely?
