RE: Windows SUS Question
From: "Nagy Gergely" <gergely.nagy () is-energy hu>

Hi All,

Just a positive feedback. I run SUS in an environment more than 5000 PC's
without any AD installed. We distributed the appropriate registry entries.
We have set up 5 SUS servers regarding the regions and point the client to
the appropriate server. It works just fine. I also disabled the
windowsupdate.microsoft.com on every pc with a registry entry as well. So
they will not be able to update their PC's on their own decision. Only
approved updates will be installed.
This way it is a controlled environment and only approved updates installes.

Feel free to ask if you need any help.

Br,

Gery

AU checks for Microsoft's certificate - if it doesn't match then AU deletes
the downloaded update.

Security of Auto Updates:

Re: Windows Update:
Are the auto-update procedures particularly susceptible to mischief?
If the Reg values for WUServer was, in fact,
"WUServer"=http://hackyourupdate.com/
"WUStatusServer"=http://hackyourupdate.com/
What if the DCOM vulnerability had been used to drop these reg keys instead
of dropping a worm.
What, do you think, are the protections within the client to determine a
clever substitute and prevent? Ditto for all Auto Updates.
Thanks,
Ron Cohen
