Microsoft says it had already fixed software flaws linked to an alleged breach of the global banking system before they were exposed last week.
Axar.az reports that on Friday, a group called the Shadow Brokers published details of several hacking tools, indicating they had been used by the US National Security Agency (NSA) to spy on money transfers.
Reports suggested Microsoft's Windows operating system remained vulnerable. But the firm revealed it had in fact addressed the problem in March.
"Customers have expressed concerns around the risk [Shadow Brokers'] disclosure potentially creates," it said in a security update.
"Our engineers have investigated the disclosed exploits, and most of the exploits are already patched."
The company has not, however, revealed how it became aware of the flaws. Microsoft normally acknowledges third parties who tip it off to problems, but has not done so in this case.
