        Hello All,

        I am newer to this posting stuff, but here goes…

        My company is running Windows 10 version 1709 and by years end will be on version 1809. I know the MS-DEFCON level is referring to the newer version 1903/1909, so how do I tell if how this DEFCON level is also the same for my version 1709/1809?

        Thanks in Advance

        The DEFCON level applies to ALL versions of Windows. (Unless there is a real necessity to patched ASAP, like SQL and Exchange Servers this month).

        fyi, only the enterprise & education editions of 1709 are still supported until April 2020 but the home & pro versions of 1709 were EOL’ed on April 2019. As for v1809, support for the 1809 home & pro editions end on May 2020 while the 1809 enterprise & education editions will be supported until May 2021.

        noted in the Windows lifecycle fact sheet page on the support end dates for many Win10 versions

        but as PKCano said the DEFCON level is for all Windows versions including the ones not mentioned or already out of support

        General consensus here is move to 1903 or 1909. The issues seem to be with updates, not 1903/9 itself.

        cheers, Paul
