Hello Support,

When i run Nessus tool says that "Security Updates for Exchange (February 2019)"

Microsoft has released the following security updates to address this issue:

if i see below the links: KB is not availble in WSUS Server
Cumulative Update 22 for Exchange Server 2013

    Based on my research, this issue has been addressed in Exchange 2016 CU12 and it is also included in the later CU.



    So, I believe that the scanning tool needs to be updated or its better to check with the Nessus scan support forum.
