Windows XP EOL
Posted on October 31, 2014 by
Effective April 8, 2014 Microsoft no longer supports Windows XP. Therefore, Microsoft no longer will provide security updates or product patches, nor will they provide any technical support for Windows XP problems.
Without security updates or patches, Windows XP computers are likely to be targeted for attacks. Hence, they are more vulnerable to malware than computers running current versions of Windows (Windows 7, 8, or Vista) for which security patches are available.
It is conceivable that the only resolution for certain security vulnerabilities will be to cease use of Windows XP. Accordingly, departments should plan to upgrade Windows XP computers. In many cases, older computers do not have the capacity to run more recent versions of Windows and will need to be replaced.
Contact your departmental IT support staff or the Computer Services Center help desk if you need assistance with your replacement options.
