    I am also a windows 7 user(attack rate: -95%) but I was not attacked why? Because I am not fool like other dumbass windows user(for example- those who ask programmer to install windows ).I got a infected file through email but ignored it.

    @Nayan also if you have windows updated you didn't have to worry for the malware spreading trough samba (the vulnerability there is/was also on samba on linux)

    @dontbeevil disabling Windows Update on 10 isn't a thing anymore. You can only set your "active hours" so it doesn't update while you're working -- and "active hours" can only be an 8-hour time span.
  • 1
    @JSn1nj4 i know, also in creators update they extended the active hours to 16 (?) hours...qnd in fall update you'll can also pause non security updates
  • 1
    @dontbeevil they extended it? As much as I like that, I don't know whether to feel like throwing a party or punching them in the face.

    Maybe a party where we all punch them in the face?

    Also, I now realize I'm saying this to someone with the username "don't be evil".
  • 1
    @JSn1nj4 yes i double checked:
    1- in creators update they extended the active hours to 18 hours
    2- if you switch off the pc at least once per week and let him install the updates, specially the security ones, you don't have to worry about updates starting in the middle of your work
  • 1
    @JSn1nj4 and like it or not, but if win7 updates worked like 10, we had no people infected with wannacry
  • 2
    @dontbeevil But that's in hindsight. Have you had Windows 10 force all of your software to close in the middle of working, before "Active Hours" was introduced?
  • 1
    @dontbeevil And when I say that, I'm also saying that "Active Hours" was a breath of fresh air compared to having your computer forcibly shutdown for updates.

    One of those earlier updates also put my laptop into a perpetual state of rebooting, and the most recent Creator Update made me have to reinstall sound driver (it was gone) and put some of my default programs and color profile settings back in order.

    So I hope you'll understand my frustration with Windows Update, even if a more recent one did fix what WannaCry would've otherwise exploited.

    @JSn1nj4 I understand your rant, but as I have had always the habit to switch off the pc at the end of the day, and if there were any updates install it, i never experienced this problems

    The only people I've seen run into it aren't really smart to begin with.

    @JSn1nj4 don't worry the fall update is coming soon :/

    All WannaCry is is a free encryption service!
