WSUS - how does it determine the "Update Classification"

Recommended Posts



Using SCCM 2012 with a Software Update Point.


Can someone advise how SCCM determines the "Update Classification" for each update it pulls down from Internet?

I ask because many updates being downloaded in our environment are being put in the Update Classification of "Critical Updates", yet the "Severity" of the updates are set to "None".


I've been asked to account for which is the case - are these updates truly "Critical" or this a product of how our environment is set up?


I attach an example update and a look at our update classification settings.
