Microsoft again patched a critical vulnerability in Windows Defender, Security Essentials, and other security software that allowed an attacker to take over vulnerable Windows computers. The vulnerability was in the Malware Protection Engine. The patch was released last week and is different from a similar vulnerability for which the software giant previously released an emergency patch.
