How to Patch Chrome 72.0.3626.121 when Not in Catalog Yet?

Anyone pushing updates to Chrome 72.0.3626.121 yet?  I see the new version in Software and in inventory on a few computers but it is not yet available in patching.  SMA detects this new version as "created 03/01/2019 15:13:40" 

My SMA says "`Patches last updated: 5 hours ago`" so it should be current.  How long do new patches take to show up?  It's been almost a week.  How can I  patch this latest Chrome version through K1000/SMA? 

Looking to patch Chrome to address the "zero day" bug they have in the older versions outlined here: https://www.zdnet.com/article/google-reveals-chrome-zero-day-under-active-attacks/

Found an answer in the Kace Slack.  Our SMA/K1000 downloaded all patch info this morning a few hours before the chrome patch hit the Kace feed.  Just jumped the gun a little, lol.

Ran a manual patch update and now see the patch in Patch management where expected and detecting momentarily for a lunchtime test deploy.

Unless you disabled updates for chrome, it will update when the machines start up.  I did a WOL to all my machines and forced 2 inventories.  Now I show 75% up to new version vs 20% when I first checked today.

  • We do still have auto update on and are sitting about 40% currently. - JS_DC 2 years ago

Using Group Policy

We recommend that you keep auto-updates turned on so that your users receive critical security fixes and new features as they become available.

In Group Policy (Computer or User Configuration folder):

  1. Go to Google and then Google Update and then Applications.
  2. Enable the Update policy override default policy.
  3. Under Options, choose Always Allow Updates (recommended).
  4. Go to Google and then Google Update and then Applications and then Google Chrome and repeat steps 2 and 3 to make sure auto-updates are also always allowed for Chrome Browser.

You can optionally override this setting for an individual app by using the Update policy override policy in the specific app folder.
