Microsoft Security Advisory 4022344 was just released (5/9/17).  It regards malware that allows the installation or deletion of programs, the ability to create new user accounts with full permissions, and gain access to private information wherever it might be stored.  The malware is distributed via email.  The Microsoft patch modifies the Microsoft Malware Protection Engine.  On a Windows 7 PC, do I need to install this patch if I am running TM Maximum Protection ??
