Who told you this?

"Microsoft says that Windows users (regardless of their Windows version as long as they’re still supported - so Windows 7, 8.1, or 10) with the most recent updates installed (May 2017) and with the latest Windows Defender virus definitions are not vulnerable to attacks launched with this new form of ransomware."

Windows 10 pre May 2017 are vulnerable.

From what I have read a large part of the virus was spread by illegal copies of Windows XP. Those with illegal copies did not receive the patch. That will learn them !

Yes, too true.....

It seems weird that they coded it the way they did. I see it as a dry run!
