    Microsoft CRITICAL Patches ‘Wormable’ Flaw in Windows XP, 7, 2003

    Microsoft today ( 14 May 2019 ) is taking the unusual step of releasing security updates for unsupported but still widely-used Windows operating systems like XP and Windows 2003, citing the discovery of a “wormable” flaw that the company says could be used to fuel a fast-moving malware threat like the WannaCry ransomware attacks of 2017.


    update CVE-2019-0708 does not affect Microsoft’s latest operating systems — Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows Server 2019, Windows Server 2016, Windows Server 2012 R2, or Windows Server 2012.

    See krebsonsecurity.com/2019/05/microsoft-patches-wormable-flaw-in-windows-xp-7-and-windows-2003/
    where this update is available, and link is support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4500705/customer-guidance-for-cve-2019-0708

    My update was automatic ( via other software instigating the update ) and took appox 30 minutes
    Most of it was for .Net Framework.

      So the people running above O.S. and keeping records of their rental portfolio, lists of rental and leaseholder accounts are, in your words, not eligible to know their systems could be compromised.

      The update is SO important, that computers that cannot receive updates, because Microsoft have stopped doing updates for their systems, are being updated automatically ( as mine was ) as the threat is classed as CRITICAL. - - - YES CRITICAL, AND You don't want anyone to know about it.

      Also, seems my post was moved from the lease and rental forum to "Take a Break - for the less serious" !
      So a serious critical, once only patch, that Microsoft initiated a world wide forced download is deemed not worthy to investors, property owners, leaseholders, letting agents etc etc.

      Then so be it.
