McAfee Endpoint Protection blocks July 2019 Updates

McAfee Endpoint Protection has rolled out new rules for protection against BlueKeep. As a side effect, Windows Update is being blocked, so July 2019 updates are not coming.


Users of the security solution McAfee Endpoint Protection have their problems with Windows 10. The past months I had some warnings about problems with McAfee with Windows Update in this blog.

The above tweet by security researcher Kevin Beaumont now addresses another Issue. In McAfee Endpoint Protection, developers have introduced a rule called RDP. Might have something to do with the BlueKeep vulnerability. It only blocks the July 2019 updates. This user confirms that he received the July 2019 updates only after uninstalling the McAfee security solution. Any of you who have noticed that?
