Further Vital Updates For Windows XP and 8.0


Windows security updatesMicrosoft has taken the unusual step of releasing further security updates for operating systems which are officially unsupported, and for which we were told new updates would not be released. This includes Windows XP and 8.0.

The updates are specifically for security, and address issues which could potentially be used by "nation state" hackers.

If you run an older version of Windows, check out https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/msrc/2017/06/13/june-2017-security-u... as soon as possible for the details and the download links.

That update to prevent ransomware virus is under the name of "Windows6.1-kb4012212-x64.msu" if you cannot download the file on windows update, it just google it and it is offered on several sites. Good luck.

Thanks for the news Rob
Microsoft, it seems, does need to support older Windows operating systems (including Windows 7, Windows 8) after all, to keep the Windows ecosystem safe

I wished Microsoft/Windows/Automatic Updates would get these for us automatically!
