Daily definitions update for Windows Defender (Aug 1 to Aug 15)

While reviewing the security update entries at Calendar of Updates, I noticed that Windows Defender has daily updates which is unusual so I fire up the blog page of Anti-Malware Team of Microsoft to see what’s new with that (if any) and there I find their announcement last August 2nd that there will be daily updates for Windows Defender (antispyware in Beta) from August 1 to 15.  So check your updates daily for Windows Defender.  If there’s any issue, contact Microsoft at the public newsgroup.


After August 15, they will resume to twice weekly release of definitions.
