After being taken aback by how swiftly WCry (aka WannaCrypt) ransomware was able to spread to Windows machines all over the world, in an unprecedented display of common sense, Microsoft has released a security update for Windows XP to correct the vulnerability in SMBv1.

To download it, simply search Microsoft Update Catalog for KB4012598.

There is also a patch for Windows Server 2003 x86 and x64 editions. The patch for Windows Server 2003 x64 can be used to patch Windows XP 64-bit Edition.
