Microsoft Defender Now Better at Blocking Ransomware on Windows 11

Microsoft Defender Now Better at Blocking Ransomware on Windows 11

Microsoft has released new Windows 11 builds to the Beta Channel with improved Microsoft Defender for Endpoint ransomware attack blocking capabilities.

As the company added, starting with today’s builds (22621.450 and 22622.450), the enterprise endpoint security platform also gets better at detecting and intercepting what Redmond calls “advanced attacks.”

“We enhanced Microsoft Defender for Endpoint’s ability to identify and intercept ransomware and advanced attacks,” Microsoft’s Amanda Langowski and Brandon LeBlanc said.

When asked for additional details on what enhancements were added to Defender for Endpoint, LeBlanc declined to share more info besides what was shared in today’s blog post.

The new builds add several other improvements, including storage replication over low bandwidth or congested wide area networks (WAN) and file compression if Server Message Block (SMB) Compression is configured.

They also address issues triggering 0x80070026 errors when copying files from network drives and causing Microsoft Edge to freeze when using IE mode.

“This update (version 2206.40000.15.0) includes several new updates such as updates for input compatibility in apps such as games, networking and windowing improvements, and reliability updates,” Microsoft said.

For instance, starting today, Windows Subsystem for Android Settings app allows users to toggle on compatibility for games with joysticks (mapped to WASD), gamepads in games, and aiming and sliding with arrow keys.

While ​Microsoft has also updated Windows Subsystem for Android in July to enable Windows 11 Insiders to use their VPN’s IP address with Android apps, users are now asked to disable Advanced Networking in settings when using VPNs if they lose network connectivity.

The Windows Subsystem for Android is available in public preview for United States users starting in February 2022.
