From what I've heard this was using an exploit patched in the March release of Windows (ms17-010)

Being generous you might say the places affected have a 2 month test cycle and they release them the 1st Monday after Patch Wednesday.

Being cynical/realistic, I'd say they have a sporadic patching strategy and there will be some serious questions asked next week
