Microsoft released a patch in March of this year for all currently supported operating systems. Due to the seriousness of the WannaCry ransomware attack, Microsoft has also provided security updates for previously unsupported operating systems. Here are some tips that can be used to confirm the WannaCry patch is installed on your system.

   • To see if the patch is already installed:
   • Click Start > Control Panel > System and Security.
   • Under Windows Update click the View installed updates link.
   • Scan the list (which can be alphabetized by clicking the box marked Name, or sorted by date) to see
      if you have ANY of these patches installed, then you are protected:
           –      2017-05 Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 7 (KB4019264)
           –      April, 2017 Preview of Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 7 (KB4015552)

   • CREATORS UPDATE (version 1703) is OK.
   • ANNIVERSARY UPDATE (version 1607) – If you have Build 14393.953 or later, you are fine.
      If you do not, use Windows Update to install the latest build 14393.1198.
   • FALL (er, November) UPDATE (version 1511) – use the steps above to check your build number.
      You must be at build 10586.839 or later.
   • RTM (“version 1507”) – same procedure, make sure you’re up to or beyond build 10240.17319.
