Changing the Way We Fight Malware

From PCMagazine:

Changing the Way We Fight Malware

"Microsoft is sitting on an absolute gold mine of information. The Malicious Software Removal Tool (MSRT) running on billions of computers worldwide and every Windows Update process sends a ton of non-personal telemetry back to Microsoft Central. This data could help antivirus companies and academic researchers develop better ways to fight malware. In a keynote speech for the 9th IEEE International Conference on Malicious and Unwanted Software (Malware 2014 for short), Microsoft's Dennis Batchelder explained just what the software giant plans to do with all that data and it's not what you might expect."
