Microsoft’s Director of Incident Response, Simon Pope, confirms this himself in a recent wrote in a blog post: “There are potentially hundreds of millions of vulnerable computers,” Pope wrote. “It is important that affected systems are patched as quickly as possible because of the risks associated with wormable vulnerabilities like these, downloads can be found in the Microsoft Security Update Guide,” he said.
If you have updated your Windows 10, you don’t have to worry as your computer will not be affected. But, if you are yet to do so, here’s the process:

If you do not update it now, there is a high chance that this virus will damage your computer and you do not want that to happen.
