Windows XP is the reason why Wanna Cry Virus was able to affect businesses and individuals globally!!! It’s not that we are blaming Microsoft for such a version but people who still didn’t update their desktops after so many Window versions being out in the market, are the real reason!!!! The Wanna Cry virus was only able to affect those systems that had Windows XP installed. This was entirely the fault of those who chose not to update their systems.
Microsoft took an unusual step i.e making a patch for older Windows versions like XP just to protect their users against the WannaCry ransomware. And the best part about this new update is that if you are using current, supported versions of Windows, including Windows 7, 8.1 and 10, or Windows Server versions between 2008 and 2016, your systems will automatically update. If you have versions without extended support, including Windows XP, Vista, 8 or Server 2003, you will need to download and install the patches manually.
