With all the rage in the news about WannaCry Ransomware I thought it would be good to have the exact Microsoft KB packs that will give you protection against this malware.


Windows XP, Windows 8

  • You don’t have the patch, unless you downloaded and installed it already.
  • Follow the links under “Further Resources” at the bottom of the Technet page to download and run the installer.

Vista

  • Security Update for Windows Vista (KB4012598)

Windows 7

  • May, 2017 Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 7 (KB4019264)
  • April, 2017 Preview of Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 7 (KB4015552)
  • April, 2017 Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 7 (KB4015549)
  • March, 2017 Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 7 (KB4012215)
  • March, 2017 Security Only Quality Update for Windows 7 (KB4012212)
  • If you have any of those patches already installed, you’re golden.
  • If you have none of those patches, download and install the May, 2017 Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 7 (KB4019264) for 32-bit or 64-bit.
  • If you’re manually installing Security-only patches in the “Group B” style, you MUST have the March, 2017 Security Only Quality Update for Windows 7 (KB4012212).
  • Other Security-only patches don’t include the MS17–010 fix.

Windows 8.1

  • May, 2017 Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 8.1 (KB4019215)
  • April, 2017 Preview of Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 8.1 (KB4015553)

  • March, 2017 Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 8.1 (KB4012216)
  • If you have any of those patches, you’re fine.
  • If you have none of those patches, download and install the May, 2017 Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 8.1 (KB4019215) for 32-bit or 64-bit.
  • See note above about Security-only patches.

Windows 10

  • Creators Update (version 1703) is OK.
  • Anniversary Update (version 1607) — Check your build number. If you have Build 14393.953 or later, you’re fine. If you don’t, use Windows Update to install the latest build 14393.1198.
  • Fall (November) Update (version 1511) — use the steps above to check your build number. You have to be at build 10586.839 or later.
  • RTM (version 1507) — same procedure, make sure you’re up to or beyond build 10240.17319.

These patches will upgrade windows to the latest builds for each version.

  • May, 2017 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 (KB4019474) — 10240.17394
  • May, 2017 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 (KB4019473) — 10586.916
  • May, 2017 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 (KB4019472) — 14393.1198
  • May, 2017 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1703 (KB4016871) — 15063.29 — but this version is ok

All of these are available in SCCM. I suggest though that you make a plan for updating these systems to 1703 though if you are a enterprise user, otherwise just google the patch number and install it manually.
