We use Tenable.io for vulnerability scanning and it has flagged a number of Windows endpoints that have old versions of Teams installed. I was puzzled by this as Automox patches Teams, and it turns out that because we’re using the machine wide installer, the Teams application is being installed into the user’s Appdata directory. This will only get updated if the user logs in but we don’t regularly log in with some accounts.
I’ve read suggested fixes including:
- Create a GPO that deletes old accounts from the machines. This is problematic for us IT admins.
- Remove the machine wide installer so that Teams is not automatically installed when a user first logs in.
Has anyone found a way to resolve this using Automox? I’d be interested to learn how others have resolved this.
