HI one and all.


Regarding the files installed alongside the CDM probe (and possibly others):

Has the version of the C++ redistributable used (2008 / 2010) been identified as being part of the current Windows Ransomware attack vunerability?


If this is the case, can the CDM (and any other probes) accept the patched / most recent versions of the redistributable file without over-writing them?


Has anyone else seen this supposed issue?


Cheers all.
