Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool

Why is it that the Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool 
takes so long to download each month?  It's July 29th and I still see 
June's entry in the Vulnerability List.  Everything else came down by 
Friday following Patch Tuesday.  This happens every month.  Does it 
happen to everyone?

Server version 6.3.2.700

Thank you!

Leslie,

no reason I can think of why that one's any different to any other in 
that respect...

Is there any way for me to force it to come down?  I've gone to the 
Options tab and clicked Update Now.  That doesn't seem to bring it down 
either.

I tried that, too.  I had 3 or 4 vulnerabilities that hadn't been 
cached, so I checked them all - including the MSRT.  They all cached 
fine except the MSRT.  :(

Anything else I can try?

Leslie,

are you /sure/ it didn't cache? If you try to deploy it, does it let 
you?

It's not even in the list as July.  June is the only MSRT that is in the 
list.  Normally, when the new one comes down, the previous month 
disappears.  So the only one I have is last month's.

Leslie,

that's the one I have also - they usually lag behind with things like 
this

I have observed the same thing too.  In addition, when I use the content 
update tool to put in the latest malicious software removal tool (using 
the previous month's package), the package is renamed to *user modified* 
MS 890830 etc. etc. and I can deploy this package.  However, the next 
day, this package "disappears" and I no longer can deploy it.  Strange.  
I can't even re-create the package using the content update tool.  This 
has happened only with version 6.3.  The previous versions all worked and 
the *user modified* only disappeared when the real package downloaded and 
cached.

:( want me to report this as a problem? It's harder to test this when 
I'm 5,000 miles from my server, but not impossible :)

pretty please sir -- it drives me nuts that i have to deploy a user 
modified patch (which is impossible since we go thru 2 testing phases 
before pushing out any deployment to the real people) on the day i create 
it.  so i end up editing a deployment (with the package created with the 
content update tool) to send to the real people and somehow, it does not 
work as well -- a number of users deployments fail.

i sure wish that patchlink would be faster in releasing updates--can't 
make a good case for timeliness when you get patches 2 to 3 weeks after 
they are released by Microsoft (people wonder why spend the money to use 
patch management?).  didn't bother me before because the content update 
tool did a good job (just had to find similar packages to use) but now 
that those modified packages disappear ....

whatever you can do will be greatly appreciated -- even if it is just an 
explanation from the powers that be  :)

as I understand it, what's happening is that the "old" patch is being 
removed, and your user modified patch is a but like an MST, so when the 
real patch goes, so does yours. If you want to create your own patches, 
that's what we sell the PDK for...

I was talking to one of the Patchlink managers, and generally they have 
to concentrate on patch that MS have flagged as "critical", then move 
on to the others.

The impact is VIRUS REMOVAL.  The situation is that we aren't getting 
the current month's patch until the next month.  I'm having to download 
the current patch from Microsoft's website and push it out with ZENworks 
for Desktops.  It's August now, and the MSRT in my list of 
Vulnerabilities is still June.  I've never received July and the August 
one will be out in less than a week.

Would you please report this as a problem?  That's the only patch that 
this is happening to.  Each month, when I get the listing of new MS 
patches, I keep an eye on what's coming down onto my Patch Management 
server.  All the rest of the MS patches come down within 2 or 3 days of 
"Patch Tuesday".  It's just the MSRT that's taking a month or more to 
come down.

Thanks, Shaun!

Leslie,

is this your only form of virus protection? I'm happy to push PL to say 
that customers feel that this should be treated as high priority, but 
if MS doesn't class it as critical, they obviously don't think it's all 
that important...

Oh, heck no.  We have lots of layers of virus protection.  (Desktop, 
mail server, firewall, etc.)  It's just annoying to get all the patches 
rolled out and then that one comes down and I have to start all over 
again.  If it's not important, then I'll just ignore it.

Leslie,

just wondering why you need to push it out so soon then? I'm asking PL 
anyhow...
