Microsoft’s Malicious Software Removal Tool pulled

Microsoft has pulled the Malicious Software Removal Tool [version 5.54] from yesterday [November 14]. Unsure what the issue is about.

But when I ran it on one computer, it detected that Skype [version 7.40.0.104] was fishy.

If you ran MSRT already you may be required to run it again when re-released. If your computer is updated before the re-release, you will be notified of a further update once MSRT is re-released.

This issue may only be with the full download. The Windows Update version may not be affected. However, for example, in Windows 7 it is optional.

[Update 2017/11/15:] That didn’t take long. Microsoft released updates today.
