Table of contents

Updated May 17, 2017


This article describes how to create a filtered Patch Manager report which checks Microsoft patches regarding WannaCrypt.


All Patch Manager versions


A WSUS inventory needs to be performed on a regular basis for the report to be accurate. You may need to check your Task History for the most recent inventory. If an inventory has not been run during the last week, run one now. The Generate a WSUS Inventory report topic provides instructions on how to create, schedule, and run a WSUS inventory report.

Then create and run the following report.

Via the Patch Manager console

  1. Open the Patch Manager console.
  2. Go to Administration and Reporting > Reporting > WSUS Reports > Windows Server Update Services Analytics.
  3. Right-click on Computer Update Status, and then click Edit Report.
  4. On the bottom half of the Report select the following filters:
    • Computer Update Status
    • Update Title
  1. Select Operators, and then enter the KB number in the Contains field.
  2. Save the report using the KB number as the filename.

Repeat the steps for all applicable KB numbers.

Refer to Microsoft Security Bulletin MS17-010 - Critical to get the KB numbers.
