Greetings :)

While some XP systems were hit, it actually turned out that the vast majority of infected systems were running Windows 7, not XP (the initial reports of the threat mostly targeting XP systems were inaccurate):

http://www.techrepublic.com/article/98-of-wannacry-victims-were-running-windows-7-not-xp/

https://arstechnica.com/security/2017/05/windows-7-not-xp-was-the-reason-last-weeks-wcry-worm-spread-so-widely/

https://betanews.com/2017/05/19/windows-7-spreading-wannacry-ransomware/

Additionally, while the ransomware itself is certainly a factor, the primary means of distribution for this ransomware (and the vast majority of malware in general these days, including ransomware) was an exploit, which our Anti-Exploit protection (included in Malwarebytes 3 as well as offered in a free standalone beta) shielded users against on day-0 at hour-0 meaning we had it covered/our users were immune to the attack without the need for any updates (our anti-exploit technology uses behavior, not signatures to detect and stop exploit based attacks).

FAN-TAS-TIC ! I'll have a look at it ...

BTW: "...a free standalone" for... 14 days !?

Many thanks

The Anti-Exploit beta is free with no time limitations to my knowledge, just like the Anti-Ransomware beta.  Malwarebytes 3 Premium of course, requires a subscription/license and offers a free 14 day trial to try it out.

To set your avatar just click on your name next to one of your posts which should take you to your profile.  Once there, click on the little picture icon next to the currently set avatar image on the left and it should give you the option to set/upload an image to use as your avatar.

Ah, that's for the Premium version, right.  Once it reverts to free mode it still offers protection for major web-facing applications, in particular web browsers, so you do still get the main core of protection even after the trial.
