Probably better to wait for the official statement at this point, but it seems like there is a know issue with the update for specific operating systems.

Best workaround is probably to roll back the update.

Here is Microsoft Official Statement:

Late Monday night (Pacific Daylight Time), March 18th, Microsoft received reports of multiple customers reporting crashes due to a specific detection build that was released to all channels (1.289.1521.0).  Product engineering identified the root cause, reverted the check-in, and caused a new build to start.  Just before noon an updated detection build (1.289.1587.0) was released across all channels restoring customers to full service.

The crash occurred on older platforms (Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Server 2008) when a quick scan was conducted after receiving the updated detection build.  Customers running newer operating systems, such as Windows 10, were not affected.  

The solution for customers is to update to protections build version 1.289.1587.0 or higher.  Customers utilizing automatic updates do not need to take additional action.  Enterprise customers managing updates should select the new detection build and deploy it across their environments.
