View Engine version of Windows Defender in Windows 10

Today I was notified about a security issue in Windows Defender, CVE-2017-8558 (

I had some issues finding out where I could review the Engine version of my Windows Defender in the Windows 10 Creators Update.

Opening the Windows Defender GUI from the system tray opens the Windows Defender Security Center, which is not the window to review your engine version, but merely the signature version.

To view the Engine Version, go to
-> Settings
-> Update & Security
-> Windows Defender

My Egine version is 1.1.13903.0, as shown in the screenshot below. According to CVE-2017-8558 I’m not vulnerable for this issue.
