A new feature that adds security and fixes a problem that allows ransomware to propagate on a machine.

If the OS was secure then it wouldn't be needed however it is therefore it's a fix to a problem.

Lets say a variant of ransomware infects Windows 7 machines but not Windows 10 due to this "feature", you could argue that Microsoft was negligent in not adding this to Windows 7 leaving users vulnerable as they are obliged to supply security fixes.

You say tomato, I say potato.
