    Under Windows Installer Rules, the default setting is to allow running all digitally signed MSI files, signed by any publisher.

    I've deleted this rule, because I don't see why I'd make an exception for MSI files (there's no such rule for EXE files).

    But I wonder if this default whitelisting is there for a reason, if perhaps such files are used for Windows updates or whatever... I guess I'll see when the next updates come, but if anyone has more info let me know.
