Microsoft Malware Protection Center

In April, we were provided with a preview of the Microsoft Malware Protection Center. The Malware Protection Center is no longer in "preview" mode but rather final form. A nice addition to the portal is the inclusion of the latest definitions for both Windows Defender and Microsoft Forefront Client Security Antivirus.

It comes as no surprise to see positions 1-3 of the top MSRT Detections as variants of the Zlob trojan. This trojan is often referred to as the "SmitFraud" infection or Trojan-Downloader.Win32.Zlob. I'll provide more information on the Zlob trojan in another post. In the meantime, check out the new Microsoft Malware Protection Center

Update 10 July 07:

The Antimalware Engineering Team Blog posted an update today announcing the official Version 1 of the Microsoft Malware Protection Center Portal.


Remember - "A day without laughter is a day wasted."
May the wind sing to you and the sun rise in your heart...
