Patch for WannaCrypt attacks RRS feed

  • Question

  • In a May 12, 2017 TechNet article Microsoft announced the unusual move of issuing patches to correct the WannaCry vulnerability for both Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 even though they typically no longer support those versions.   Links to allow download of the patches are available from the article.  One version of the patch is for Windows Server 2003 SP2 x86.   I have an HP MediaSmart server running WHS v1 which I know is based on Server 2003.   When I log on and look in system information it says the OS is Server 2003 for Small Business and identifies the version as 5.2.3790 Service Pack 2 Build 3790.    On the other hand, I know that my server has the drive extender feature which the normal version of Server 2003 doesn't.   Can anyone say with certainty that the patch released for Server 2003 either will or won't work with my version of WHS v1.   If not can anyone at least confirm that installing it won't clobber the server's file system.   Thanks
