Now, according to Microsoft's Simon Pope, the Group PM Manager at the company's Security Research Center, the issue has been fixed.

 

Customers should verify that the latest version of the Microsoft Malware Protection Engine and definition updates are being actively downloaded and installed for their Microsoft antimalware products.
