  1. I'm sure you all heard of the ransomware spreading through the world. My question is, which security update on Windows 7 must I install? I do not ever install any updates so there is a lot. I'm just looking for the specific one.

    Please help
    Thank you! :)

    I believe it's kb401212, kb4012215 but it's not self-evident in the description

    Thanks for the reply, would you recommend I do all security updates just to be safe?

    Most definitely. Remember that WannaCry is only one specific form of malware. There are thousands of others that all exploit different know security problems.
