Microsoft Corporation claims that it has released security patches for breaches released by Shadow Brokers. Microsoft claims that nine of twelve exploits had already been patched. It was up to Microsoft operating system users to ensure these patches were installed.
One of these exploits was patched before Microsoft Windows Vista had ever been released for public consumption.
