Default WannaCry patch

I used a link on SlashDot to find a WannaCry patch for Vista on
Microsoft's web site. The file I downloaded is named
windows6.0-kb4012598-x86_13e9b3d77ba5599764c296075a796c16a85c745c.msu

When I run it, it puts up a box labeled "Windows Update Standalone
Installer", which contains a progress indicator labeled "Searching for
updates...

And there it sits, with the progress indicator spinning and spinning
forever. What's going on with this thing, and what do I need to do to
get the patch installed?

Try stopping the wuauserv service, then run the update.

Near the bottom of the list in Task Manager, Services.
