For further information, please review Microsoft's article about this issue:



The main issue with reporting on this patch is that Microsoft released it on multiple rollups, that being said as long as you are scanning your machines and have approved the patches it should have been rolled out. If this particular patch does not appear in the patch update page that the machines did not detect this as vulnerability and was likely included in another patch.



If you like some additional peace of mind and would like to deploy that patch manually you use the patch deploy method in the Agent procedures module, by referencing the particular KB where the OS specific patch was included by Microsoft. The information can be found in the links bellow. Both The approval by patch page and patch update will show you if any machine still needs this patch to approved or applied manually.



Please find below Microsoft's list of the appropriate patch KB number for the "Wanna Crypt" update based on the Operating System Version and build.
