    People can decide on their own whether to use repacks or not.

    There is, afaik, no limit on the Edit button, thought...

    I absolutely agree, but with a proper explanation of why it’s better than the original, and offer him a download page of the original MS, otherwise it is suspicious

    @IXMas , I made the verification scripts specifically for people having doubts
    you can verify digital signatures of the individual files in the cabs quite conveniently
    what exactly is not clear for you?

    OP has never claimed his work to be better, only (as a rule) more up to date

    0. he has previously done so Post 05

    only thing suspicious here is your agenda


    To Clarify

    1. @steven4554 is generously providing (apart from his his time) these so-called repacks at the request (and appreciation) of a number of us
    2. The work is more than transparent for those of us who, at the very least, think we know what we are doing
    3. @BAU has also provided a vereification script Post 04 for the overly guarded

    not sure what more can possibly be needed from a contributor(s) other than the elements mentioned

    Edit: @BAU ... beat me to it

    Just goes to prove the very point I was making. you arrived here on the forum... and iterjected (injected) your personal opinions (and that was all they were)
    without ... (can't be bothered) anyway.. we get to the point where no one here agrees with you.. and your first response is..... fight or flight (Flight in your case)

    apologies to @steven4554 . @BAU, @Enthousiast ... (another bad day) ... there was a lot more, intended to be included, but thought the better of it (Forum Rules etc...)

    Note that at the time this was first posted, official defender cabs where even more outdated than atm.
    Microsoft does not provide these in a timely manner, and it kinda defeats the purpose to integrate an already obsolete package because it would not fix most issues with defender after a fresh install / repair.
    Hence the usefulness of this contribution for those that use bleeding edge images.
    The safety of it was covered, it does not matter where the cabs are made or where are hosted, as long as all sensitive files inside have a microsoft digital signature.
    What's left.. free snarky remarks? I can be quite verbed too, but I feel I contributed in a more constructive manner already so I'm gonna leave it at that.

    Just been offered Platform Update 4.18.2104.6

    Direct Download Links have been removed, as this version of the platform update is out of date and could pose a security risk.
