Microsoft patches Windows XP to fight 'WannaCry' attacks

Too bad they didn't offer it to 2000 :)

Well, I'm sure some enterprising person can find a way to backport the patch, since 2000 and XP share a common codebase (NT 5.x), and are relatively compatible with one another (case in point: the latest HFSLIP packages for 2000 incorporate many XP-specific updates which appear to slipstream successfully into 2000's install media, and said media seems to install a properly working 2000).

c

p.s. Is 9x, NT 3.xx or 4 affected by this?

I was just thinking about that.  Perhaps it can be adapted from XP's update.

It may require whole SMB back port from XP. XP uses different version SMB than 2k

This is ransomware. So if:

- they don't have backup (Basing on their panic, they don't);

- shadow copy is off or deleted (and WannaCry deletes shadow copy);

- there is no known decrypter (and since it uses RSA 2048, it can't be done easily);

The only thing that could be done is to try to pay ransom. But since it's author is probably chased by major national investigation bureaus, I bet he shut his services down. I didn't find any 'universal' decryption method in the internet, and if any will appear, major IT sites will inform about it within minutes.

We can only hope author will release his key pairs hoping to take down the chase.

FYI - direct links to XP SP3 for those of us who might somehow need to re-install the service pack:
