MC296611 (Updated) Microsoft Defender for Office 365: Introducing Built-In-Protection Updated May 04, 2022: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

Note: this has begun being enforced for organizations where it is already available.

We are introducing a powerful new default security preset called Built-in-Protection in Defender for Office 365. Built-in-Protection is a third preset security policy (like the Standard and Strict preset policies), and is enabled by default for all new and existing customers. It will implement a version of Safe Links and Safe Attachments resulting in low impact on the end-user. It's low impact as the end user experience will not be changed - URL links will not be wrapped. However, it will implement delivery time file and URL detonation as well as time of click protection.

[Key points:]

Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 72208.

Timing: We will begin rolling out in mid-December and complete by mid-June (previously late April).

Beginning in early November, you will be able to view the Built-in-Protection preset in the Defender for Office 365 portal and configure any exceptions required ahead of the policy enablement rollout that begins in mid-December.

Action: Review and assess impact to users in your organization.

Note: Configured exceptions will be honored for the Safe Links and Safe Attachment settings within Built-In-Protection when it is eventually enabled for your tenant. Configured exceptions do not apply to the global Safe Links and Safe Attachment settings within Built-in-Protection. To changes these settings after Built-in-Protection is enabled, admins can modify the global Safe Attachments or global Safe Links policies directly at any time. To learn about the specific settings set by Built-in-Protection, please see: Microsoft recommendations for EOP and Defender for Office 365 security settings - Office 365 | Microsoft Docs

MC342072 (Updated) Safe Links Global Settings Migrated to Custom Policies Updated May 20, 2022: Beginning in June we will begin enforcing the policy settings for "Use Safe Links in Office 365 Apps", "Track Clicks", and "AllowClickThrough" as you have it configured in the custom policies under Safe Links. If you have already reviewed your custom policies and made configuration changes no action is required. As a reminder the default value for this policy is "On" and any users, domains, or groups specified under a policy will be covered. Part of this change will include deprecating the "Use Safe Links in Office 365 Apps" and subsequent settings from the Global Settings menu.

Customers that have "Use Safe Links in Office 365 Apps" turned on, will need to create a custom policy in order to maintain safe links protections in Office 365 Apps. This change was planned to be deployed in conjunction with the completion of the Built-In Protection. However, the two changes will reach customers at differing times. Beginning mid-April tenants will see the policy setting Use Safe Links in Office 365 Apps in both the Global Settings menu and Custom Policy. As a reminder in the future tenants will not be able to manage this setting in the Global Settings menu.

Only the policy setting "Use Safe Links in Office 365 Apps" configured in the Global Setting menu will be enforced at this time. Another update will be sent prior to removing the policy setting from the Global Setting menu."

To create a more consistent user experience across all policies in Microsoft Defender for Office portal the following Safe Links policy attributes will be migrated from the Global Settings flyout to the custom policy settings.

Note: Use Safe Links in Office 365 Apps

Do Not Track when users click protected links in Office 365 Apps

Do not let users click through the Original URL in Office 365 Apps

MC365786 (Updated) Configuration Change in Name parameter for Exchange Online Updated June 1, 2022: Based on customer feedback, we have made the decision to provide additional time for organizations to prepare for the change. We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your feedback.

We're making some changes to the way Name parameter is being set in Exchange Online. We will be making a change to utilize unique ExternalDirectoryObjectId (EDOID) in the place of Name parameter in Exchange Online only.

[When this will happen:]

We will begin rolling this out in late June (previously late May) and expect to complete late August (previously late July).

[How this impacts your organization:]

After this change administrators may no longer be able to see subsequent CN value change in Exchange on-premises to be reflected in the object’s Name property in Exchange Online.

The updated naming logic would take effect only during new user creation. Existing users won’t get impacted in any way.

Please note that since we will start using EDOID as Name in Exchange Online, we shall stop allowing changes in CN to reflect in Name property in Exchange Online for all users (both new and existing).

MC383873 (Updated) Expansion for Alert Generation for Alert Policy ‘A Potentially Malicious URL Click was Detected’ The current default alert policy named 'A potentially malicious URL click was detected' generates an alert on URL clicks for specific scenarios. One of the primary scenarios is called verdict change. The URL in the email was identified as "good" when it was delivered to the Inbox, however, when the user clicked the URL, Time of Click validation identified the URL as "bad" (as conditions / actions of the URL changed since email delivery). This verdict flip now describes the previous user clicks as clicks on malicious URLs, however, no alert is currently generated for the previous clicks.

We are expanding on this scenario to identify any user clicks on URLs going back 48 hours from the time of the verdict change. This reevaluation gives SecOps teams more insight into the historic clicks on malicious URLs and takes the appropriate actions.
