thats most likely the fix from the wannacry(pt) stuff.. it does not mean they're continuing support for xp.. they simply said they released it for all vulnerable systems due to the chaos the malware was causing... 

you should have done more research -> https://www.theverge.com/2017/5/13/15635006/microsoft-windows-xp-security-patch-wannacry-ransomware-attack

so, if anything.. its a one off..

the link that you've indicate is in the last link (google search):

a security group manager at Microsoft. “Given the potential impact to customers and their businesses, we made the decision to make the Security Update for platforms in custom support only.”

It’s an unusual move for Microsoft, but this security flaw and the way it was discovered and made public is equally unusual.
