Microsoft Has Ended All Updates and Support for Windows XP Operating System
Windows XP is 12 years old—that’s pretty old for an operating system. Why is this happening?
Microsoft has supported older operating systems much longer than most other businesses in this industry, but they can’t keep supporting old operating systems and still move forward creating new and better products.
Why Not Just keep The Windows XP Computers I Have?
Microsoft will no longer roll out security updates for the OS. That means your computer will be more susceptible to hackers and other scammers, who could exploit bugs that Microsoft is no longer fixing to gain access to your machine and steal your personal information and intellectual property.
Computers running on Windows XP will also become increasingly vulnerable over time — and there will be no one to prepare any fixes for the vulnerabilities. The malicious community is likely to aggressively research and pursue finding new exploits on XP.
The problem with an old operating system like Windows XP is that it’s not up to speed with modern attacks. Operating systems need to be patched (updated) frequently to keep them safe from data thieves, scammers, viruses, and the like. There are no more updates coming.
Even one computer running Windows XP could easily infect other computers on your network. Although the mobility of laptops allows workers to be productive wherever they go, security at home and in public places is much weaker compared to that of the office these devices could put the rest of your business network at risk.
