Windows XP updates since May 2014 (not POSReady 2009)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I have been surprised to find more updates for Windows XP since May 2014.
I only had the first package against Wannacry that came out in 2017 installed but there are more, at least until May 2019.
On this website there is a well ordered list:
https://github.com/CNMan/MicrosoftHotfixesList/issues/2
On this other website there is a messy list
https://www.manageengine.com/products/desktop-central/patch-management/Windows-XP-Professional-updates.html
It includes other updates (I don't know why) and it says that MSRT 5.48 works to clean Wannacry but the truth is that it doesn't install in Windows XP.
https://www.manageengine.com/products/desktop-central/patch-management/Windows-XP-Professional-updates.html
MSRT can be downloaded here:
http://ms-vnext.net/UpdateArchive/
KB updates can be officially downloaded here:
https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com
Or from here:
https://www.manageengine.com.au/products/desktop-central/patch-management/Windows-XP-Professional/
Here's more information and links to 2017 updates (2019 missing):
https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/microsoft-issues-windows-xp-security-updates-for-previously-ignored-nsa-hacking-tools/
There is also an unofficial update for ESTEEMAUDIT but I understand that Microsoft has already made an official update.
https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/security-firm-releases-windows-xp-patch-for-nsa-exploit-esteemaudit/
(download does not work)

I wonder what happens if after installing these XP updates the updates POSReady 2009 are installed, I suppose that doing it in order there will be no problem.
not?
Do you know any more official XP updates?

Suppose these kinda necessary updates have hidden telemetry and stuff to make WinXP more controllable as the further versions are, maybe slower as well. After the latest news about M$ tricks on Win7's media player and wallpaper I expect nothing but the worst.

As the original https://github.com/CNMan/MicrosoftHotfixesList/issues/2 poster said

almost all of these updates have their corresponding updates that are made for Windows Embedded Standard 2009 or Windows Embedded POSReady 2009

I checked some of them, one is superseded, one for IE8 is not necessory (although not marked as superseded, in fact only last IE cumulative patch is needed). I think others might also be like that.

Can you indicate which KB is superseded?
Thanks

I mean it is superseded by POSReady updates. I randomly picked one so I could not remember which one. I am a user of POSReady and cannot understand the logic to update XP after SP3 but exclude POSReady. So I'd rather not bother to find it out again.
