‘The Windows Insider’ blog: ‘Microsoft is trying to turn off your antivirus, so it can install spyware on you’
Microsoft’s Project Eagle, a software security tool developed to help protect PCs from malware and spyware, has been accused of turning off a Windows Insider program meant to let users know if they’ve been infected with a malicious or spyware-infected program.
The Windows Insider website shows a warning for “Windows Insider Program.”
Microsoft said in a blog post that it has been investigating the problem, and the company is “working to remove the warning, but the system is not secure.”
Microsoft says it is working with security researchers to remove “malware” from the Windows Insider Program, and “will be taking action if necessary to prevent malicious software from affecting our customers.”
The Windows Insiders are Windows users who are running the latest versions of Windows.
They’re not necessarily running a virus scanner or security software, but they’re part of the Insider program.
“This is not an uncommon experience,” said Mike Lasky, director of security at security firm FireEye.
“The software that runs in the background is probably not malicious.
But the virus scanner may have been infected and it may have done something to the computer that we can’t trace back.
And we’re looking into whether the virus scanners that we have in place are vulnerable.”
The virus scanner in question was installed by Microsoft, but some of its users have complained that it wasn’t doing anything to help their computers.
Microsoft says the program is intended to notify users if a virus is present on their system, but many users have reported the program not detecting malware and not alerting them when they’ve installed spyware.
“It’s been very disappointing to us that we’re seeing so many people having these issues,” said Laskys security expert.
“I have to admit that I’ve gotten pretty upset with this program for a long time.”
Microsoft’s software team has been aware of the issue for months, and has been trying to fix it.
But after an internal survey of Windows Insulators revealed that almost 70 percent had reported being infected with spyware or malware, Microsoft said it would be taking some steps to prevent future infections.
Microsoft is now testing a new feature that automatically deletes Windows Insider updates when users download the Windows 10 Anniversary Update.
Laskyd said that Microsoft is also testing a fix for the bug that allows the Insider Program to be turned off automatically.
Lissner said that if it can’t be fixed within a week, Microsoft will “turn it off” again.
Microsoft said that it will not beifying users if they have been affected by the virus.
It said that the company’s team is working to find a solution to the problem and has contacted affected users to ask them to “voluntarily” opt-out of the update.
