Threat Research & Response Blog
Would you like to know more about the MMPC, and how we protect computer users worldwide? We have released new versions of two whitepapers which describe how the MMPC operates, and provide an introduction to the antimalware technologies that the MMPC supports. The two new papers are:
- Malware Research and Response at Microsoft: This paper discusses the evolving nature of malware and introduces the team of antimalware researchers in the Microsoft Malware Protection Center (MMPC), which helps keep computers and systems free of malicious and potentially unwanted software around the world. Download the whitepaper from http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=9776702.
- Introducing Microsoft Antimalware Technologies: This paper describes the technologies that Microsoft uses to combat malware. One core technology in use is the antimalware engine, a component that works with many Microsoft products and services. Download the whitepaper from http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=9776701.
You can also read the results of the extensive insight and intelligence that the MMPC has developed in our recently released Qakbot MMPC Threat Report and the brand new Security Intelligence Report Special Edition about the Rustock takedown.
