If you don't have a public IP and don't share an SMB volume you can't be hacked this way.
Of course installing Windows updates on a regular basis is highly recommended.

1. When you say not have a public IP are you saying that only places with a registered domain IP?
(so the info on the net about clicking on an attachment doesn't apply? and it is only people on a corp intranest where the intranet is connected to a registered domain?)

2. not sure what SMB volume is.

3. For myself installing windows updates is not highly recommended. Doing this makes my system unstable. Their updates can and do cause endless hours of updating other software. Requiring other updates etc.

Its easy for some with endless hours of free time to dance for Mircosoft - but mircosoft doesn't pay me. I have limited time and useless work for MS means losing my time for my work. I doubt they will write on my tombstone "He always updated his computer regularly though accomplished little else in life."

If the previous poster was correct that security essentials protected me then I was always protected, So updating for this patch was not required.
- though this was not clear from either the limited info of internet posts on wannacry or Microsoft.

For many years microsoft has worked to help the invasion of your privacy by incorporating spyware in their updates to help out big brother. Regular updates makes sure the latest and biggest holes are there. (IMO) This is behind the sleazy force to Windows 10

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.

Don't use the update


12:07 PM 5/17/2017

So I just did a system restore to After the patch.
The system went through its motions and ended up with an error message
"System unable to restart"
-Nice work with the patch Microsoft!
luckily rather than exiting or 'report to Microsoft" I went through the advance restore options
a screen I've never seen before and was able to restore to an earlier restore point.

My confidence in Microsoft? Zero.

So I'm going to stay as is and no updates.
We'll let Security Essentials do its stuff!

-------
note I used the security only update

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.

No, not directly related to domains. Retail Internet users don't have public IP on their own PC (only their ISP router has one) so no worries here.

2. not sure what SMB volume is.

It's when you share a drive or a folder on your PC, so your laptop can read/write the files which are on your desktop for example.

If the updates can't be installed then something is wrong. I can't say where your problem is but it can help in installing few updates at a time, not all of them in one step (if you have a lot of updates to install).

No I can install and did - but when running recovery it failed



Thanks Sam.

Fascinating.

"The Google researchers found that MsMpEngine contains a component called NScript that analyses any filesystem or network activity that looks like JavaScript. NScript isn't sandboxed and runs at a very high privilege level, and it's used to evaluate untrusted code by default on almost every modern Windows system. "This is as surprising as it sounds," the bug report says."

Yes surprising as it sounds.
Why not sandbox it? Why run at high privilege level?

Oh well. The whole thing is just plain tiring.

Thanks again,
Ian
