    Just as a reference, this is as of 10:00am today. Go to Update and Security and open Windows Defender.

    Wannacry - how to check if my Windows 10 1607 64 bit system is protected

    I now understand how you combined them, but that's where the problem lies, since the patch released in March was the one I referenced in my post above for SMBv1, MS17-010.

    The separate comment from Microsoft regarding Windows Defender is simply referencing the fact that a definition for the Wanna Cry/Wanna Crypt malware had been released as well and has nothing to do with the March Update.

    The May 8th release of an urgent replacement to the Microsoft Anti-malware Engine had nothing to do with either of these, so I'd need to see that Fox article to see if that added to the confusion, which is quite possible with so many mostly unrelated, coincidental
    events in the same week.

    Security Update for Microsoft Malware Protection Engine

    Wannacry - how to check if my Windows 10 1607 64 bit system is protected

    I'm not sure which you mean by the May update, but this may be contributing to your confusion and very possibly that in the Fox News live report as well, since such media reports are often riddled with inaccuracies relating to technical situations such as
    malware attacks.

    Since the Microsoft Anti-malware engine and definition updates are both shipped in the same large package whenever the engine is updated, for some the difference between these may be blurred. The engines are typically only released once every one or two
    months, while new definitions packs are often released over a dozen times a day.

    As for the engine security update, this provided a fix for the entirely separate issue covered in that advisory.

    So neither of the anti-malware updates did anything to improve the situation regarding this vulnerability, and only the Wanna Cry definition released since Friday would have had anything to do with improving the ability for Defender or any other Microsoft
    security client app to detect and block the malware itself. This would have been a possible aid to those who for whatever reason had not installed the March MS17-010 patch, since it might at least have stopped the actual malware attack from succeeding in the
    worst case scenario that it was encountered.

    Rob

    < EDIT > As I stated from the beginning Bruce, the issue with your initial post had nothing to do with the basic facts, it's the implication you create in your first sentence below that the patch in March had anything to do with Windows Defender, which it
    didn't. In fact, if the SMBv1 patch had been installed, then neither Windows Defender nor any other security program was even necessary to provide protection from this specific malware, since the updated patch itself would have blocked it fully.

    "Microsoft released a patch in March to protect this from happening when using Windows Defender in Windows 8.1 & 10. Most that were affected were using another version or security program. If you have all available
    updates installed, then the patch was installed regardless of when you updated."

    So maybe rather than being confused by the various unrelated updates I've referenced, you simply didn't write that sentence well and/or keep the concept of anti-malware protection separate from the issue of the original SMBv1 patch. Regardless, the result
    is an inaccurate representation of what actually occurred or was required to provide the actual protection to prevent a Wanna Cry infection.

  5. I just ran an update. You have a later Antimalware version than me. All else is the same. Must be you are on 10 Pro.

    Clayton,

    That's why I posted 15063.250 at the top. If you hold down the windows key and press R (Win key+R) and type WINVER, you will see the version you're on, which should match what's shown on the defender screen.

    Think he was confused by the Antimalware vs Engine versions. He probably show Antimalware as 14393.
