Windows XP Security Concerns

By 3rd May 2016Uncategorised

It has now been two years since Microsoft ended support for Windows XP, the Operating System that fist came into use in 2001.  There are still a large number of people using this system and they should be aware that this means they are particularly vulnerable to being hacked.

Last month statistics showed that 10.9% of all desktop PC’s were still running Windows XP as their main Operating System. When you consider that Microsoft puts the number of Windows devices at more than 1 billion, we are talking about tens of millions of computers today running an old, outdated and insecure Operating System. If you are one of those users you should call us here at Business IT+ to find out how we can help you to remain secure.

Most popular Internet browsers have also stopped support Windows XP Including Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.
