Thanks for posting the article.

I wonder what other MS products will be able to auto remove these types of programs as not everyone uses Windows Defender.

MSE could also be modified as well but that is well down on the list of effective AV programs, so not sure how many are still using that.

The monthly MSRT is another program that could be modified and Win 10 users have no choice in that running, but it isn't running all of the time.

I wonder if there'll be an official notification to users ?
