    Ways to check your current Defender Antimalware Platform Version


    With all these sfc /scannow hash corruption issues tied to updates in Defender's Antimalware Platform it's helpful to know what you're currently running and when it was installed:

    Option One: The Defender Install Platform Folders

    C:/ProgramData/Microsoft/Windows Defender/Platform/

    These are created with each new update and labeled with version numbers. The most recent folder is the currently installed platform. This quickly shows when the update occurred. I put this file link in my Firefox menu favorites:

    file:///C:/ProgramData/Microsoft/Windows%20Defender/Platform/

    Option Two: Settings > Update & Security > Windows Security > Virus & threat protection > Settings > About

    Note: Date information is not provided

    Cumulative Update KB4507453 Windows 10 v1903 build 18362.239 - July 9



    You can also get version and date information for the Antimalware Client itself in Settings > Update & Security > View Update History > Definition Updates, as well as in the Reliability Monitor ( if enabled ):

    As with previous antimalware client updates, the update doesn't show in Update History. It can be seen in Reliability History.

    Edit: 1st March - another update has been issued, version 4.12.17007.18022. Seems this is to be a regular monthly event.

  3. Does it include update for antimalware platform?


    Does "WDA" stand for "Windows Defender Antimalware"?
    When I say "antimalware platform", I mean "Windows Defender antimalware platform".
