End of Life for Windows XP and Office 2003 and What That Means For Your Systems

April 4th, 2014

 

In this month's Special Edition newsletter, our aim is to alert you about an important security issue that could affect the PCs in your office as soon as next week.
Microsoft will stop supporting Windows XP next week on April 8, 2014.

Because end of support means Microsoft will stop providing security patches to these products, many pundits are currently expecting a rash of XP-related viruses and malware to be released almost immediately.

If you know of anyone, even a friend or colleague at another company, who is still using Windows XP at work or at home, please let them know about this important security issue. The vulnerabilities it leaves open can make their systems a hacker’s paradise.

A very thorough guide consisting of 10 essential tips related to this issue we’ve come across is here. We encourage you to be sure you’ve properly evaluated your readiness for this important deadline date.  If you think you might need assistance determining if your systems are ready, contact us today.
