Windows 11 KB5014019 update is facing the ransomware issue. Accordingly, the update affects Trend Micro users.
The Windows 11 Build KB5014019 update caused a critical security issue about a week after it was released. This update, which is a preview of the version, is offered to users who participate in the Insider program, as you know. It turns out in these user experiences that Windows 11 KB5014019 version disables an anti-ransomware program.
Windows 11 update KB5014019 security issue: Ransomware protection disabled
The issue of removing ransomware protection in question arose in Trend Micro products. Accordingly, in some antivirus software from Trend Micro, Windows 11 KB5014019 disables some protections, especially ransomware protection.
The Windows 11 Build KB5014019 update poses a ransomware issue. Accordingly, the update disables the GNA driver, which provides ransomware protection. According to Trend Micro, the UMH driver deactivation affects some advanced features besides ransomware protection. But the company did not disclose what these features are.
Build KB5014019 is not a mandatory update. In this sense, it is in the hands of Insider participants whether to download the version or not. Trend Micro products with problems are as follows: Apex One 2019, Worry-Free Business Security Advanced 10.0, Apex One as a Service 2019, Deep Security 20.0, Deep Security 12.0 and Worry-Free Business Security Services 6.7.
The KB5014019 version just came up with the ability to eliminate some bugs and the desktop wallpaper loop feature. Other than that, some minor errors have disappeared.
Trend Micro, on the other hand, gave some advice to its users who installed the Windows 11 update in question. Accordingly, the update needs to be temporarily disabled to fix the problem. Again, users can contact Trend Micro to get the debug module of the disabled GNA driver. Trend Micro has started working to find a permanent solution to the ransomware problem that occurred with the release of Windows 11 KB5014019.
Microsoft is already giving Windows 10 users a free pass for Windows 11. However, despite this, users are not yet eager enough for Windows 11.
One of the main reasons for this is the problems experienced in the updates. Users are of the opinion that Windows 11 is not ready enough in this sense. The crashes in the system also caused some users who installed Windows 11 to switch to Windows 10 again.
