Windows XP – The Ultimate Hackers Playground

April 9th 2014 – The Day after…

Never before has an operating system been supported for this length of time. Never before have roughly 40% of the worlds desktop PCs become instantly vulnerable. Never before have businesses kept so much personal data on customers in-house. Never before has the world been this technologically dependent… and the backdoor will suddenly be opened after 8th April.

Microsoft will stop supporting XP after 13 faithful years of service, to focus on 3 more operating systems it has released since then. It makes perfectly good business sense for them to do this, but it doesn’t mean that a lot of computers will be left vulnerable instantly.

Hackers and unethical and invited visitors to your company computer records will find it easy to access XP based systems from virtually the moment they know Microsoft will no longer provide security updates.

The activity of hackers globally has eased off recently against the larger trend. It’s an open secret amongst the IT security industry that XP based systems will be the No1 priority target the moment Microsoft will never add security patches to your system again. So the hacking techniques or weakness they have spotted today, they will keep in the locker once they know it won’t be counteracted.
