Windows 7: Windows XP Microsoft Security Essentials Available via MS Update

Windows XP Microsoft Security Essentials Available via MS Update

So today, I decided to patch up my Windows XP netbook and came across Microsoft Security Essentials in the Software section. I thought Windows XP End of Support (April 8) was the day that MS would stop providing downloads for MSE, so I wondered if it was just an installer, so I checked the update and installed it. It turned out to be the whole program. Is this a loophole that MS didn't close?

I didn't find a setting for updating. Did I miss something? And I have Windows Update set to update...
