Great news. Thanks.

Reading to the bottom of the article...

"There were actually some Windows 10 users who got infected, but those users launched the ransomware by hand and were not infected via WannaCry's self-spreading worm, which didn't have the technical capabilities to infect Windows 10 devices."

I guess this means that the phishing attack succeeded, but the SMB security hole that allowed self-spreading had been patched in Windows 10.
