Update to the Hitchhiker's Guide to Microsoft Defender for Endpoint exclusions
The development of Microsoft Defender for Endpoint is an ongoing process and as such the features and capabilities change over time. Microsoft Defender Antivirus exclusions are no exception. On 22.06.2022 Microsoft released the platform version 4.18.2205.7 of MDAV and with it a new exclusion category “Contextual file and folder exclusions.
This type of exclusion brings additional flexibility and allows fine grade scoping of file and folder exclusions. Of course this meant to update my post Hitchhiker’s Guide to Microsoft Defender for Endpoint exclusions” to include this new type of exclusion. Otherwise it wouldn’t be the complete overview I intended it to be.
So head over to the updated version to read all about contextual file and folder exclusions.
