    ISSUE 20.17.1 • 2023-04-25

    By Susan Bradley

    I’m ready to approve the April updates.

    Accordingly, I’ve lowered the MS-DEFCON level to 4. This is not to say there are not a few oddities out there, but they will not affect many users.

    Most of the unusual behavior in updates this month is due to slow changes that will lead to future enforcement changes.

    Microsoft has also pushed off the implementation of the mandatory, number-based, multifactor authentication for Microsoft 365 applications.

    Anyone can read the full MS-DEFCON Alert (20.17.1, 2023-04-25).
