So due to that Global Ransomware Attack I decided to check for the updates Microsoft mentions I need here. Neither KB4012212 or KB4012215 are found in my installed updates list or upon repeatedly checking for updates manually. I even searched through my list of hidden Telemetry updates from the past & they're not there either. So are us Windows 7 SP1 Home Premium 64-bit users supposed to wait? Has the update already been installed but is hidden in a rollup pack?

When trying to visit the Microsoft update catalog via your link I'm sent here with the following error. I still don't even know how to double check whether or not I already have the patch(s) bundled in one of the rollups I got over the past 2 months. I've searched for KB4012212, KB4012215 & even KB3212646, none are on my system although I'm not even sure if those are the correct update names. In the Microsoft Security Bulletin MS17-010, it lists those numbers without the KB so I just added it on assuming that's what I need to search for. The only download page I've been able to find regarding KB4012215 is this one, but there's 4 different Windows 7 related downloads all with the same update KB number, which do I pick?

If you installed the March updates, you should already have it.

I had every security update for March yes but apparently KB4012212 is the latest patch for the Ransomware Worm. I had asked a similar question to this on MS Answers Forums as well & someone there instructed me to download that, which upon doing so it didn't alert me of already having it so had to of been lacking.

Again, if you installed the March set of updates, you have the patch. It's in the "March, 2017 Security Monthly Quality Rollup" which was installed on my Windows 7 machine March 14.

Anyone who has Windows updates enabled should already have it.

Hmmm, why did the KB4012212 update that MS Answers user had me download, install successfully if I already had the fix? I scanned the file & it's clean plus nothings happened so I know it wasn't malicious. Although the fact that Windows didn't alert me saying that the update was already installed makes me wonder why. Could it be because the patch was bundled in a rollup with a different KB# & all I did was basically reinstall a different copy of the same fix over existing?

KB4012212 is the March 2017 Security Only Quality Update, and KB4012215 is the March 2017 Security Monthly Quality Rollup.  Notice the "Only" in the former.  Both patch the vulnerability exploited by the WannaCry ransomware.  The latter, KB4012215, is a larger update containing the security fixes in KB4012212 plus additional, non-security fixes.  Applying KB4012212 is not necessary if you have KB4012215 applied already.  That said, attempting to apply KB4012212 anyway will succeed since it was not already installed, even though it adds nothing new over KB4012215.

 

EDIT:  I should add that not only is your computer patched with KB4012215 applied, but it is also patched if you have a newer Security Only or Security Monthly Rollup present on your system, such as May 2017 Security Monthly Quality Rollup KB4019215.

Thank you so very much, now I can fully relax & focus on building my new PC very soon. :)
