  • Born: Windows Defender isn’t getting updates

    Not sure of the cause, but it looks like Windows Defender for Win7 is broken.

    Details on Günter Born’s Borncity blog.

    UPDATE: Vess Bontchev confirms and Kevin Beaumont says he’s bringing in the Windows Defender Security unit.

    As the twitter account for Comcast notes:


    We are having a slight problem… or rather they are.  East Coast and West Coast are impacted.

    (and yes I realize that the title is the catch phrase for Verizon, but it was the best I could think of as a catchy phrase for indicating that some of you might be suffering from a lack of Askwoody and think it’s the site having issues and not you)
