If you’re looking for an easy fix to a problem, the new Windows 10 malware blacklist could be just what you’re searching for.
According to a report by antivirus firm Sophos, the malware blacklist will automatically filter out malicious programs that contain the words ‘malicious’ and ‘cybercriminal’ and also allow users to delete malicious programs.
Sophos said that the new blacklist will not filter out malware that is created with malicious intent, such as exploits or viruses, but will instead restrict the type of programs that can be installed on computers.
It will also not include malware created by the malware creator that uses exploits to target computers, but instead allow the user to uninstall the exploit.
Sophousa’s research team has also found that users can disable the automatic removal of malware from computers.
The new malware blacklist can be disabled from the Settings menu, but it requires a manual reboot of the computer.
This is useful if you want to disable the blacklist completely, as it will delete all malicious software on your computer.
The malware blacklist has been available in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update since March, but is still in beta.
Microsoft’s new malware-filtering feature is still a work in progress.
Sophnos has already tested it on a handful of Windows 10 PCs and noted that some of the new features may be limited to a limited set of computers.
For instance, the team noted that the blacklist can only block programs that are installed by a trusted third party.
The team said that these third parties include Microsoft, third-party companies and antivirus providers.
For the time being, Sophos’s research has shown that the malware-filter feature works in Windows Defender, the Microsoft Security Center and the Windows Update app.
