    Microsoft Release an Emergency update for Windows XP to protect against WannaCry. 

    Microsoft Release an Emergency update for Windows XP to protect against WannaCry MalwareMicrosoft Release an Emergency update for Windows XP to protect against WannaCry Malware

    MICROSOFT has just released an emergency software patch for the now “obsolete” Windows XP. The emergency patch should offer protection against the WannaCry malware that recently took down a large portion of the NHS.

    This is a highly unusually move for Microsoft as they stopped supporting and issuing security patches for Widows XP on April 8, 2014.

    Microsoft took this move to try and prevent the ongoing spread of WannaCry as it was using affected machines as platforms to continue the spread of the infection.

    If you have not already done so and you are using Windows XP then you should go straight to https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/security/ms17-010.aspx and download it ASAP.

    If you would like to get rid of malware on your machine, talk to us about prevention or if you would like to upgrade your machine please Contact Us.

    If you have any questions or you have any tips of your own, Why not drop a comment below.
