Microsoft Defender for endpoint generating it's own malware?

Copper Contributor

Hello Everyone,

I have been closely monitoring our alerts and incidents recently, and I've come across something rather puzzling. From the data, it appears as if Microsoft Defender might be generating its own malware. This seems counterintuitive and quite unexpected. Can this even be possible? I'd appreciate any insights or similar experiences from the team.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Hey @Gustavo599 


That looks like a legitmate virus, have you tried to rebuild the machine to see if it has the same affect


Also is this happening on any other machines?
