Microsoft Issues Security Patch for XP

May 16, 2017 -- It hasn't been prudent to use Microsoft Windows XP since support for patches ended on April 8, 2014. Software from the WDT is not supported when run on XP, even though most of it will run (some with problems). The impact of this week's ransomware virus has compelled Microsoft to release a security patch for this obsolete operating system. According to Bob, N6TV, "In light of all the damage caused by the WannaCry ransomware, including many out-of-service Windows XP systems that many of us may still use on at least once computer, Microsoft has issued Security Patch KB4012598. You can go to the Microsoft web site (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us) and enter "KB4012598" in the Search box at the top to find it, or you can use this direct link to the software catalog page. The patch is a simple program (.exe file) that you download, run once, and then reboot. To verify installation after reboot: Start, Control Panel, Add or Remove Programs. Check the *Show updates* box at the top, wait a bit, then scroll down to *Windows XP - Software Updates* at the bottom. You should see Security Update for Windows XP (KB4012598) at the bottom of the list."
