defender rules/definitions

New Contributor

Is it possible to get(read) the list of active defender rules/definitions? For example, the list of all file hashes that defender checks for? Or all the malware/virus samples defender already has protection for.


We basically want to know if there are currently any definitions for this new Pheonix Ransomeware.

You can view Threat Intelligence information about threats like Phoenix here: (you can search for threats).


Additionally, you can see more information about Microsoft Security Intelligence here:


Does that help?
