BLODA list has no dates or versions against entries, so it's possible

If you want to disable its functions, go into Settings, Updates &
security, Windows Defender, exclude Cygwin or Windows root directory,
then switch settings off.
You may also have to change settings under Control Panel, Security and
Maintenance, Security, to disable functions.

They are probably also changeable from Settings as above.

Go to Task Manager, Startup, Windows Defender notification icon, and set
it to disable. You may have to kill the task, or restart Windows to stop
it running, and you may then have to tell Windows that you really don't
want to run Windows Defender.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
