DALLAS, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – After Tuesday April 8, 2014, support and security updates for Microsoft Windows XP will no longer be available.
Windows XP is now 12 years old and is still the second most popular version of Windows operating systems.
According to Microsoft, if you continue to use Windows XP after support ends, your computer should still work, but it will become five times more vulnerable to security risks and viruses.
The High Tech Texan, Michael Garfield talks with 1080 KRLD about the risk this poses to Windows XP users.
Still one thing that hasn’t gotten a lot of press lately…a whopping majority of ATM’s are still using XP.
