Windows XP also updated

Interestingly, Microsoft's oldest and most successful OS Windows XP and Windows Vista-which have reached their end of support also received updates in limelight of fixing serious vulnerabilities that showed up after the wannacry ransomware attack. Microsoft also published a blog post, indicating that the updates released yesterday fix some serious vulnerabilities that pose a greater risk of attacks.
“In reviewing the updates for this month, some vulnerabilities were identified that pose elevated risk of cyberattacks by government organizations, sometimes referred to as nation-state actors, or other copycat organizations… To address this risk, today we are providing additional security updates along with our regular Update Tuesday service. These security updates are being made available to all customers, including those using older versions of Windows.

It is important to note that if you’re running a supported version of Windows, such as Windows 10 or Windows 8.1, and you have Windows Update enabled, you don’t need to take any action. As always, we recommend customers upgrade to the latest platforms. The best protection is to be on a modern, up-to-date system that incorporates the latest innovations. Older systems, even if fully up-to-date, lack the latest security features and advancements.
