  1. Windows Defender Error message when clicking the Exploit Protection settings


    Hello,

    An error message appears when I click the Exploit Protection settings inside the App & Browser Control section in Windows Defender.


    The error message is: "Unexpected error. Sorry, we ran into a problem. Please try again"


    The Virus and threat protection settings are being configured through SCCM and Endpoint Protection policy.

    There no Exploit Guard policy configured inside SCCM.


    I have already performed all the steps described inside this article but with no luck.

    Thank you,

    George

  2. Exploit Protection Settings

    Open Windows Defender Security Center and click on
    App & browser control
    and there find Exploit protection settings
    and you could change settings for Exploit protection from there.

  3. Exploit Protection Settings

    The Exploit Protection settings are preconfigured; and home users should generally just leave them alone:



    The Use default configuration for each of the mitigation settings indicates our recommendation for a base level of protection for everyday usage for home users. Enterprise deployments should consider the protection required for
    their individual needs and may need to modify configuration away from the defaults.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/wi...xploit-guard/exploit-protection-exploit-guard



    The preconfigured applications have been optimized by Microsoft – and adding customizations for other apps requires both a rationale and an understanding of the potential consequences, since haphazardly changing the default settings for an app can
    easily render it dysfunctional.



    It’s ironic that these application mitigations are exposed in the Windows Defender Security Center interface, while the safe and simple Windows Defender configuration options are only available via the PowerShell Set-MpPreference command line:

    The Set-MpPreference cmdlet now also includes the parameters for Attack Surface Reduction and Block at First Sight:
