I was wondering how to update a windows xp system to Microsoft's latest update that deals with the wannacrypt worm (MS17-010). I heard that in an unusual move, Microsoft made the update available to windows xp systems too. I don't see the usual update prompts from windows update within the system. Going onto microsoft's website only shows options for windows vista and up. I was wondering how to download the update and apply it to a windows xp system.

Prove me wrong but if Microsoft doesnt provide something for your os, theres a reason behind it... I mean you can probably get by this by going to a 3rd party website but that can be dangerous

MS provided a patch for Windows XP
