Can anyone tell me what is actually being updated via the "Update for Microsoft .NET Core Runtime and Hosting Bundle" I have uploaded the update, but according to Windows Defender the ATP PCs are still out of date, so what has actually been updated?

That product in our catalogue updates the ".NET Core Hosting Bundle" - more information about that Microsoft product here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/aspnet/core/host-and-deploy/iis/hosting-bundle?view=aspnetcore-6.0

Specifically, it's looking for a registry key under the below paths, where the DisplayName matches the following name "Microsoft ASP.NET Core X%Shared Framework%" where X is the major version number e.g. 3, 5, or 6.


It's possible this product is not the product you want or need to patch. What do you see in Defender ATP? Does it indicate any finer details eg registry keys/values it wants/expects? That should confidentially tell us exactly what product the issue is with.


After update still I the list of PCs are recognised with older version of .net and .net core. So it seems that are not updated.

.NET Core Hosting Bundle does not update .NET Core or .NET.

.NET Core and .NET updates are not in our catalogue. Microsoft provides runtime and SDK updates for these via Microsoft Update and WSUS.
