I would like to download this patch for my win7 desktop but can't seem to find it. It did not come with a recent windows update. "Patches are currently available for Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2003, and Windows Server 2008 -- the Windows versions vulnerable to BlueKeep attacks".        This is from zdnet. Can someone guide me to the download site. I have not had any luck. Thanks.

Greetings,

As long as you installed the most recent monthly rollup for your OS then you already have this patch installed as it was included in the rollup for Windows 7.  This is how most Windows 7 users received the patch through Windows Update.  You can learn more in this Microsoft article.

By the way, if you wish to confirm it, this patch was included in the following monthly rollups:

KB4499164
KB4499175

Just check your update history to verify that one of those is installed and you're all set :)

You're welcome :)

By the way, if like me you don't use Remote Desktop you may disable it to prevent any hackers from using it, including in case any further vulnerabilities are discovered in it in the future that we don't know about yet.  You'll find instructions on how to do so in this Lifewire article.  You can also take things even further than that if you're truly paranoid (as I am) by disabling any networking components you do not need or use.  Details about doing so can be found in my post here.

I disable all remote, sharing and IPv6 components since I simply connect my system directly to the web through my wireless router/modem.  Because of this I was already immune to this vulnerability long before Microsoft ever patched it since all Remote Desktop components were already disabled on my system.  The same was true of WannaCry when it was spreading via the EternalBlue SMB exploit as I already had SMB disabled on all my network connections.  Why Microsoft leaves so many remote/sharing features active by default in their operating systems when they know full well that only a very limited number of users actually use them I will never know.  It's particularly concerning since those who would use them must know enough about computers to know how to enable them anyway since setting up such things for use isn't exactly transparent without guidance (and such guidance could just as easily document how to install/enable these features to begin with), not to mention the performance gains from not running unnecessary services and networking components all the time in the background and on system startup.  Had they done so, the WannaCry incident would have never happened and they wouldn't have had to scramble to patch every OS under the sun (including the unsupported Windows XP).
