Are you running Windows XP? Then please pay attention to this. (And if you’d feel like reblogging this to help people who follow you see it, and maybe save somebody some trouble… please feel free.)

Even though Microsoft hasn’t been supporting XP for several years, they have decided to make available for download a patch to keep XP machines from being infected by the WannaCrypt malware/ransomware that is attacking computers worldwide. Though this news is welcome, it’s surprising how many articles talking about it have failed to actually provide a link to the page where you can get the patch.

XP users: that page is here (at the Microsoft Security Blog):

The download links for your specific flavor of XP are down in the last couple of paragraphs. (There are also patches there for Windows 8 (as opposed to 8.1) and other unsupported platforms.

Since XP is one of the main targets of the malware, it’s really important that you run this patch. The first wave of the malware’s attack seems to have crested a bit, but you need to block this particular loophole, as it’s only a matter of (a very little) time before the people behind the attacks retool and launch another wave.

Lots of people are running XP because they can’t afford to upgrade, or because they have specialist software that won’t run on later releases of Windows, or both. If you’re one of these people, please take action to protect yourself NOW. If seeing this keeps just one person from having to pay the slimy bastards behind this a few hundred dollars’ worth of bitcoin – or losing their precious files forever – it’ll be worth it.

Thanks.

PS: for the more tech-savvy among you, this article at Engadget makes a suggestion about rules to apply to your home router to make this kind of attack unable to get at you:  “ Consider adding a rule on your router or firewall to block incoming SMB traffic on port 445 “ If you have the expertise to do this, there’s surely no harm in it. I’m going to do it myself as soon as I see where in our router’s dashboard to install such a rule.

“Fun fact…..The law firm, Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP, who just gave trump a certified letter stating he has no financial ties to Russia actually has an office in Moscow and was named “Russia Law Firm of the Year” in 2016.
Seriously. You just can’t make this shit up.”
