New Windows XP patch: Microsoft issues extraordinary fix to protect PCs against next WannaCry

The updates for XP and other versions of Windows, released as part of yesterday’s Patch Tuesday, have fixed vulnerabilities that could be used in what Microsoft calls “attacks with characteristics similar to WannaCrypt”.
