Well - this is what I read:

Microsoft had released a fix for that exploit a month before, in March, in security bulletin MS17-010. That security bulletin only included fixes for Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2012, and Windows Server 2016.

But in true Microsoft form, they provide the exactly correct information in an unusable form. I've also read that Windows 10 machines were unaffected by WannaCry but the title above would imply otherwise. I admit it's vague.

Time to update all of my VMs.

Okay - more info - a bit more specific, might be useful to some:
