Fix WannaCry ransomware with Windows update KB4012598

Today, Microsoft has released an update KB4012598 for Windows devices to fix WannaCry ransomware. The new update is now available for Windows XP, Windows 8 and Windows Server 2003. Previously, the company had released WannaCry ransomware patch for Windows 10 devices in Match.

Official Microsoft Post,

Today many of our customers around the world and the critical systems they depend on were victims of malicious “WannaCrypt” software. Seeing businesses and individuals affected by cyberattacks, such as the ones reported today, was painful. Microsoft worked throughout the day to ensure we understood the attack and were taking all possible actions to protect our customers. This blog spells out the steps every individual and business should take to stay protected. Additionally, we are taking the highly unusual step of providing a security update for all customers to protect Windows platforms that are in custom support only, including Windows XP, Windows 8, and Windows Server 2003. Customers running Windows 10 were not targeted by the attack today.

WannaCry Ransomware on Windows OS

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
