Strengthening safety updates to detect and protect against new malicious ransomware Effectively protecting customers from the vulnerability
Microsoft notes that many of our customers around the world were victims of malicious “WannaCrypt” software. Today our engineers added detection and protection against new malicious software known as Ransom:Win32.WannaCrypt. In March, we provided additional protections against malware of this nature, with a security update that prevents the spread across networks. Those who are running our free antivirus software and have Windows Update enabled, are protected.
