New sub-domain for Microsoft AV definition updates

This morning I was surprised by my Configuration Manager server with alerts that the software updates synchronization was failing.

Luckily for me I decided to check my other emails before diving right into the hell called SCCM logging. My FortiGate cluster was sending me emails that it was blocking some files. Files with file name: mpam-fe.exe.

Writing them down here as I always seem to be forgetting them. And than thus having to bother the great guys at
