Microsoft today has released its SHA-2 support update for Windows Server Update Services. This update is available now and is required to be installed by July 2019.

To align with industry standards, Microsoft is moving away from using SHA-1 signatures for future updates and moving to SHA-2 signatures (see KB4472027 for more details). Without applying this SHA-2 update, beginning July 2019, WSUS 3.0 SP2 (also called WSUS 3.2) will not be able to perform the necessary WSUS update tasks. Starting with WSUS 4.0 on Windows Server 2012, WSUS already supports SHA-2-signed updates, and no customer action is needed for these versions. This update is necessary for those customers still using WSUS 3.0 SP2.

Details: SHA-2 Support for Windows Server Update Services 3.0 SP2
