XP end of life

XP end of Life

From April 2014 Windows XP will stop creating security updates and upgrades to this operating system. If you are running XP on your home or office computer, you should consider buying a new machine or upgrading the operating system.


Your website runs on external servers and is not affected.

What Microsoft says:

You should take action. After April 8, 2014, there will be no new security updates, non-security hotfixes, free or paid assisted support options or online technical content updates.

Running Windows XP SP3 and Office 2003 in your environment after their end of support date may expose your company to potential risks, such as:

Security & Compliance Risks: Unsupported and unpatched environments are vulnerable to security risks. This may result in an officially recognized control failure by an internal or external audit body, leading to suspension of certifications, and/or public notification of the organization’s inability to maintain its systems and customer information.
