Note:   I am posting this early, in anticipation that the tool will be released later today.
 
WARNING:  The link for this separate download of the MSRT is now pre-checking a box to also download "MSN default homepage & Bing default search engine".    Be sure to uncheck this, unless you really want it!

Reminder:   Users who are paranoid about the remote possibility of a FP can opt to run this tool from a Command Prompt, appending a   /N   parameter [for "detect only" mode].

This month's tool adds detection/removal of ShadowHammer

Re: Updates 5/14/19 - "Microsoft+Adobe" Tuesday

With acknowledgment to Corrine for posting at Landzdown:

Due to the severity of CVE-2019-0708 (Remote Desktop Services Remote Code Execution Vulnerability), Microsoft also released KB 4500331 for versions of Windows that no longer receive mainstream support:  Windows XP SP3 x86, Windows XP Professional X64 SP2, Windows XP Embedded SP3 x86 as well as Windows Server 2003. 

----

This update is not being pushed through Automatic Updates.   Rather, one needs to go to KB 4500331 to click on the link to Microsoft Update Catalog to download the appropriate update.

I can confirm this happening on multiple machines where I work.
