Windows Defender False Positive Alerts and Printer Killing
nadnerB last edited by
MS Defender version 1.353.1874.0 has been detecting false a positive (PowEmotet.SC) in Office documents and C:\Windows\splwow64.exe (killing printer functionality) on Windows 10.
(I'm not sure about 11).
Fortunately, the issue is resolved in 1.353.1888.0
At the time of posting this, the faulty version is still published on: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/wdsi/defenderupdates
A resync of WSUS, forcing affected clients to update Defender, and then rebooting has resolved the issues that I've seen.
