Yeah I saw that:

Hilarious. It's that bad enough that Microsoft actually released a patch for XP! A testament to just how widely use old NT is.

There were other huge security vulnerabilities hitting Windows 8x, 10 and server 2016. XP really shouldn't be used anymore, there are going to be more and more vulnerabilities like this as hackers target old NT since its usage is so high still (and that means it's worth their time).
