  End of Windows XP support leaves software vulnerable
Time: 16:06 EST/21:06 GMT | News Source: CBS Marketwatch | Posted By: Robert Stein

Is this a valid concern? Absolutely. Microsoft is clearly desperate to migrate XP users to newer operating systems. Not just for the new revenue, though; unpatched, millions of PCs can become prime candidates to host botnet and otherwise disrupt the modern PC ecosystem. And as threats in the last few years have shifted - there are fewer viruses and more phishing attacks, for example - XP will be similarly ill-equipped to handle similar evolutions in the nature of hacker and criminal attacks.

At work there's a lot of boxes with XP.

It's ridiculous that so many people still run XP. At the very least, upgrade to 7 for the next 5-6 years.
