I hope you never get to see the above but if you still run Win XP (and some people and organisations have legacy software which will only run on this old operating system) then you should patch your operating system IMMEDIATELY

Microsoft have issued an official patch for the vulnerability which can be downloaded here

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=55245


.... AND FOR ALL YOU SMUG PEOPLE that think it couldn't happen to you, then perhaps you should check out this list of Windows operation systems for which a patch has been produced by Microsoft.

A rather nice write up of what this was all about and a reminder about how important it is to keep your operating system up-to-date.

Still running an old MS operating system? Well there are some new nasties that Microsoft think are worth making some patches for for the older system....
