I'm kinda surprised Microsoft is releasing a patch for it's unsupported products...

You'd think it would be a good wake up call to upgrade...


Microsoft solution available to protect additional products

In March, we released a security update which addresses the vulnerability that these attacks are exploiting. Those who have Windows Update enabled are protected against attacks on this vulnerability. For those organizations who have not yet applied the security update, we suggest you immediately deploy Microsoft Security Bulletin MS17-010.

For customers using Windows Defender, we released an update earlier today which detects this threat as Ransom:Win32/WannaCrypt. As an additional ďdefense-in-depthĒ measure, keep up-to-date anti-malware software installed on your machines. Customers running anti-malware software from any number of security companies can confirm with their provider, that they are protected.

This attack type may evolve over time, so any additional defense-in-depth strategies will provide additional protections. (For example, to further protect against SMBv1 attacks, customers should consider blocking legacy protocols on their networks).

We also know that some of our customers are running versions of Windows that no longer receive mainstream support. That means those customers will not have received the above mentioned Security Update released in March. Given the potential impact to customers and their businesses, we made the decision to make the Security Update for platforms in custom support only, Windows XP, Windows 8, and Windows Server 2003, broadly available for download (see links below).

Customers who are running supported versions of the operating system (Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012, Windows 10, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2016) will have received the security update MS17-010 in March. If customers have automatic updates enabled or have installed the update, they are protected. For other customers, we encourage them to install the update as soon as possible.

This decision was made based on an assessment of this situation, with the principle of protecting our customer ecosystem overall, firmly in mind.



I went ahead and blocked SMB1 on all my systems except one VM with my PLEX Server because its still needs it.

What about my Windows95 machine? Not worthy? Doesn't matter, it's just a door stop that I just can't seem to throw out kind of like an XP box I have as well but that XP box did happen to prove to be useful lately because it had an old out of date Dropbox folder on it that made answering a 4 year old CRA EI question much easier.

Basically there are still businesses which can't get rid of XP and Windows 2003 who are still paying MS (depends on size, I have heard into the millions) to keep some support. It's not hard for MS to write that patch and release to the public since businesses already paid for it.

We got a few XP machines and 2003 servers at work and they haven't been patched in forever, or have any antivirus stuff on them. I am doing lots of file migrations right now to 2016 servers and we constantly get hits on the new servers that data we are copying over is a virus, or some ransomware.

Kind of hope this type of shit pushes us over the edge and something actually gets done with this old shit. It's all legacy apps, but it isn't so much active software...it's just stuff they don't want to get rid off.....sigh....oh well. We will see how tomorrow plays out.

Yup. If you didn't patch Friday and still didn't patch over the weekend, you are screwed. These outbreak usually mean get everyone in and patch everything in shifts until it's done.

I was surprised all these ransomware didn't came out sooner as this exploit was in the wild since Feb. I was so worried that we will get pwned during Feb.
