How to remediate active malware

Brass Contributor

Hello everyone,


on the dashboard within the Security Center I can see that one of my devices is listed with active malware.

If I click on the dashboard icon, I get forwared to the reports, but how can I remediate this?

Do I have to isolate the device manually? What would be the normal procedure for this?

@John Matrix You can quarantine the files and also add indicators to block it. Take response actions on a file in Microsoft Defender for Endpoint | Microsoft Docs 

Thank you! :folded_hands:
