Microsoft has issued a new series of critical security patches to fix three further vulnerabilities, targeted by National Security Agency in the set of leaked exploits that included Wannacry, responsible for the cyber-attack that floored parts of the NHS last month.
Microsoft said that it identified some vulnerabilities that posed an elevated risk of attacks by government organizations or other sophisticated hacking groups, so it released additional security updates alongside the more common security patches that were supposed to be released this month.
"Our decision today to release these security updates for platforms not in extended support should not be viewed as a departure from our standard servicing policies", Doerr wrote in a blog post. But in light of a recent hacking attack that quickly hijacked hundreds of thousands of PCs, the company chose to release patches for those older, unsupported versions as well.
Today's critical security updates are in addition to the normal Patch Tuesday releases, Microsoft said.

Windows users with automatic updates enabled - especially on newer Windows platform - do not need to worry as they're protected. Older security holes had been resolved starting with Windows 7, but this still left older systems at risk.
June's Patch Tuesday for Windows machines brought no less than 96 different patches for various vulnerabilities. Microsoft has also provided a patch for this issue for older [end-of-life] platforms.
These patches also include flaws in the Microsoft Edge browser, two of which allow security feature bypass, and one that allows for disclosure of information.
Microsoft phased out support for older versions of its PC operating system some time ago. Therefore, XP and Vista users are strongly advised to apply these updates immediately, and make sure their systems are safe.
The trouble is, though, that these moves give users and businesses out there still running with Windows XP some measure of confidence that Microsoft is still protecting them, in an albeit limited manner. It had patched most of the NSA-exposed exploits in its April patch (released monthly), without disclosing who tipped them of the potential incoming horrors. A new report from security ratings service BitSight Technologies that examined over 35,000 organizations worldwide across 20 industries found that 24 percent of all systems are using an out-of-date internet browser. "I don't think that in the coming months we'll see more Windows XP patches".
