Microsoft malware scanner can install malware!
It’s been reported that Microsoft's own anti-virus engine can be used against windows users at the moment by hackers and cyber criminals. This scanner can be abused and used to install malware onto machines that are vulnerable.
There is a rather nasty flaw in the Redmond’s anti-malware software at the moment, this is packaged and marketed in lots of different forms. Some of these different forms include Windows Defender, Microsoft Security Essentials and many more. Many if not all are at risk at the moment, they are on by default in Windows 8, 8.1, 10 and Windows Server 2012.
