Not long ago, Microsoft released its Linux version in the form of Azure Sphere OS. In the latest development, the company decided to pass its Windows Defender firewall to the Linux subsystem (WSL). In other words, the Windows Defender firewall now supports WSL!


The company issued the statement in the Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17650 for Skip Ahead release notes.

Microsoft has released Windows10 Insider Preview Build 17650 (RS5), a version of Windows 10, which will be released later this year after the spring edition of RS4. This version applies to the Windows internal staff who have chosen to skip the option.

With the latest Fluent Design updates from the Windows shell and the core application, Microsoft applies the scheme to the Windows Defender security center application in the new Windows 10. The Windows Defender firewall now supports the Linux Windows subsystem (WSL) process.

Users can add firewall rules to the WSL process, and the whole process is similar to adding any commonly used Windows process rules. In addition, users are allowed to use WSL firewall to notify. When the Linux tool attempts to allow access to ports from SSH or Web servers, the firewall of Defender will grant you access.

In other security related changes, Build 17650 also introduced Fluent Design elements into Windows Defender. Now we need to make intervals and fill changes to the application as required. The title bar of the application will also change the color.
