Re: 98% Of WannaCry Victims Were Using Windows 7
Windows update stopped working for most Windows 7 computers I came across. I had to run some manual updates in order to get Windows update working again.
I think it had to do with the GWX (get Windows ten) files sent to all Windows 7 computers.
Many people were probably un-patched without realizing it.
Windows update would just hang and continue to search for updates and never completing.

I feel like "they" (experts, govt..etc) led the public to believe that only XP and windows server 2003 were at risk. In reality these systems were most at risk because they were no longer supported and now we see it was actually Windows 7.

There is something most of you dont realize. It's not regular people who got hit. People who use Windows 7 and have an Internet connection don't just get port 139 which is SMB exposed like that. Majority of them are businesses with bad security and people who expose certain ports by accident.

Start learning Qubes OS. It's designed to sanbox every application running on your computer.
It's linux based. And you can sandbox windows inside a VM on it.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 69322556


Correct, Microsoft has deliberately broken Windows 7 updates several times as many people have discovered.

To fix Windows 7 x64 with SP1 updates research (download and install) the following two .msu (Microsoft Updater) patches in the order shown below. Note this can also be done straight after fresh install of Windows 7 after Service Pack 1 (SP1) has been applied.

KB 3172605 (Windows6.1-KB3172605-x64.msu)

KB 3020369 (Windows6.1-KB3020369-x64.msu)

Windows Updates should start working again, and add about 2 years worth of patches.

Note: Microsoft added some of the Windows 10 "telemetry features" to Windows 7

Research the following two Windows 7 services (they need to be disabled or deleted using an elevated command prompt):

DiagTrack

dmwappushservice

For those who understand, the following commands may be helpful...

sc stop DiagTrack
sc stop dmwappushservice

sc delete DiagTrack
sc delete dmwappushservice

Also research the file where Microsoft log key strokes:

AutoLogger-Diagtrack-Listener.etl

The following elevated command may be helpful, it will delete the content of the file, replacing it with an empty one.

echo "" > C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Diagnosis\ETLLogs\AutoLogger\AutoLog​ger-Diagtrack-Listener.etl

You can install each patch individually, or here's the link for the Security Update for Win 7 (KB4012122) that includes all the updates listed in the link above.

I did it and it worked fine. No problems, and it hasn't asked me to upgrade to Win 10.

I used the top choice, but check your system first.

If you still want to go with installing them individually, the critical one in the first link is MS17-010.

I probably will switch to a another operating system when I get a new laptop. This one is so old, it's on it's last little ones and zeros. Changing now would probably smoke it.

Whatever. I work for a company that owns a major global MSSP. Guess what....we use Windows 7.

Windows 10 is loaded with spyware collecting your shit. They call it telemetry.

See a suspicious email you don't recognize, don't open the attachments. Delete it. Keep your antivirus and updates updated, and Windows 7 works just fine. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!
