Auto-updates are not some sort of cure-all, even though a lot of security folks seem to think they are. They're a back door for Microsoft, and considering the spyware they crammed into Windows 10, you can't really trust them to be the "good guys." You never could, but this underscores their attitude towards their customers. Plus, I've had far more harm done by updates than I ever have from malware.
