What was more alarming was that several security researches were going around claiming the exploits still worked against Windows, hence why Microsoft published the blog post. Turns out several researches and tech blogs were doing their testing on systems that we not up to date with all patches. Which is kind of mind blowing because updating your system is the 1st step in securing your system against attacks. https://arstechnica.com/security/2017/04/purported-shadow-brokers-0days-were-in-fact-killed-by-mysterious-patch/

Wouldn't be the first time a "security researcher" published false information about vulnerabilities. For every talented, thorough security researcher there's a few hacks.
