Hi Everyone,

Over the last few months I've periodically noticed a type of update I hadn't seen before that's just called "Windows Intelligence Update" and gets listed in the Other Updates section of update history. I'm curious what it is, but I couldn't find any reference to it in Microsoft's documentation. Does anyone happen to know off-hand?

(FYI I'm not referring to the usual "Security Intelligence Updates" that are listed under the Definition Updates section of update history)

I've had three so far, the first on 06/06/2022. It's not a definitions update, it tweaks the detection logic.

Microsoft said:
Microsoft continually updates security intelligence in antimalware products to cover the latest threats and to constantly tweak detection logic, enhancing the ability of Microsoft Defender Antivirus and other Microsoft antimalware solutions to accurately identify threats. This security intelligence works directly with cloud-based protection to deliver fast and powerful AI-enhanced, next-generation protection.
