For those of you thinking this is no big deal, you are wrong. This is a very big deal, possibly a ruinous one for many of us who don't make changes. I know a lot of people still use Windows XP. Microsoft is finally going to stop supporting all XP updates as of April 8. This is a true end of life for the product. MS will no longer support fixes to XP, period, and if you are running XP, you seriously need to have a plan for leaving it behind. The main reason is that Microsoft operating systems are based on the previous operating system. Windows 7 is based on Windows XP code. When a vulnerability is discovered, MS sends an update out to all supported Operating Systems. At the same time, so the hole gets patched. Because windows XP is no longer being supported, and Windows 7 is based on XP code, when any future windows 7 vulnerabilities are discovered and patched, the equivalent XP vulnerability will not be fixed. That is bad enough, but by examining the fix applied to Windows 7, hackers will have a roadmap to use to hack XP. The result of all this is that after April 9, you might as well consider yourself to be one of many people using your computer at the same time if you are on windows XP. For people like us, that means that all our accounts, passwords, wallets, and everything will be totally exposed to anyone smart enough to start harvesting, and it will steadily get worse as time goes by.
