US-CERT Warns of Windows Vista’s Imminent End of Life

Softpedia Monday, 20 March 2017 ()
US-CERT Warns of Windows Vista’s Imminent End of LifeWindows Vista will reach end of support on April 11, with no other patches and security updates to be released beyond this date. This means users who are still running Windows Vista on their computers would remain vulnerable to attacks, as security flaws in the operating system would no longer be addressed by the company. The US-CERT has issued a statement to warn of the approaching end of support for Windows Vista, emphasizing how important it is for users still running this version to upgrade to newer Windows. “All software products have a lifecycle. After April 11, 2017, Microsoft is ending support for the Windows Vista operating system. After this date, this product will no longer receive: Security updates, Non-security hotfixes, Free or paid assisted support options, or Online technical content updates from Microsoft,” the warning posted on its website
