Windows XP support ends April, Anti-malware support in 2015

Best Anniversary Sale 2024

Microsoft has maintained that it will discontinue support for its once dominant Windows XP on April 8, 2014. After April 8, Microsoft will no-longer offer Windows XP patches for vulnerabilities on XP. However, Microsoft will be providing updates to Windows XP’s anti-malware signatures and engine till July 14, 2015.

The continued update of the anti-malware signatures for more than one year after support ends is aimed at providing a smooth transition to newer operating systems for users and should not be seen as a reason to delay update to a supported Windows version.

According for Microsoft “Running a well-protected solution starts with using modern software and hardware designed to help protect against today’s threat landscape.”

So, if you are still using Microsoft XP, it will be a good idea to upgrade to Windows 7 or Windows 8 before April 8, 2014. If you can’t make it before then at least Microsoft still has some of your security covered till July 14, 2015.
