Microsoft Security Essentials (Morro) Leaks

It seems that the frequent leaks that make their way to the Internet are not limited anymore to various Windows 7 builds (read about the Windows 7 build 7260 leak here) but also to other Microsoft software products in the making. Latest leak is Microsoft’s new antivirus solution Morro which was announced only recently. Morro has been renamed to Microsoft Security Essentials recently and could become an integral part of the Windows 7 security.

Windows 7 lacks an antivirus software program and Microsoft Security Essentials is the product that aims to fill the gap. Microsoft Security Essentials has now been leaked to the Internet. Leaks are available for Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7. As Lee over at the Download Squad put it: Now it is possible to protect the leaked installations of Windows 7 with the leaked antivirus solution Microsoft Security Essentials. Oh, the irony.

Users who think about installing the security software should make sure they understand the implications. Microsoft Security Essentials is a product that has not been released yet which means that Microsoft will not be responsible for any problems that might occur.

    I’m predicting a pretty big year for Microsoft this year. They’re really rounding out their product line and their products are starting to become really impressive and well built pieces of code. Hopefully MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials) is just as solid of a program as Windows 7 is. I assume it will be very a good antivirus program. It’s based off of the same code as Windows Live One Care, which was actually an awesome antivirus program but just wasn’t very well known. I can see this program putting a lot of pressure on company’s like Norton and McAfee.

    This maybe The Rise of Microsoft.
    Windows 7 is awesome, can sit next to the great MacOS X.
    I installed Morro, it is a light antivirus, I hope it also as great as Windows 7

    I can’t wait to test Morro out and see how effective it is compare to the competition. It would make more sense if Microsoft built an ad blocker in it so I don’t have to go out and search for them.

    I tried Live One Care and it was not that bad, but it had no place in the market as a retail product.
    I would like to see a complete system security suite, with just the most basic features using the default GUI.
