There are 8-10 more XP updates to do since the one released in May according to this article:
https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/microsoft-issues-windows-xp-security-updates-for-previously-ignored-nsa-hacking-tools/
-- It's not clear to me whether the first one on the list includes all others or is each one separate?
-- In what sequence should we install them?
There also seem to be perhaps two more in addition to the 9 above, mentioned here:

-- Which to take (or not) ?

Your Microsoft blog link doesn't work, but I would advise taking every security update available for your version of XP.

 

These are individual updates and don't have an installation order.

 

You are likely not running Windows XP Embedded so you would ignore those.

 

I would be surprised if you were running Windows XP 64-bit, but to be sure, type winver in a Run box.

 

If it does not explicitly say Windows XP 64-bit, you don't have it.

After not getting any advice here for 24 hours, I bit the bullet, imaged, downloaded and installed the 9 updates. Few critical registry changes were made and few reboots required during this updating. All is well 2 days so far. This on XP-Pro SP3, 32bit.

 

No, not embedded and I don't use the POS trick to install embedded updates. Too risky.

Seeing how easy it was, I wish we got more  security updates :)
