Support for Windows 7 and many other products has ended
Information security now!
Support for several Microsoft products ended on 14 January 2020. These include the Windows 7 operating system commonly used in home computers as well as Windows Server 2008, which is part of the Microsoft server distribution family, and its latest R2 version. In practice, termination of support means that Microsoft will no longer provide technical support or software and security updates for the products in question, except for certain exceptions. After the support period ends, operating systems will be more vulnerable to data breaches and other malicious activities. The National Cyber Security Centre recommends that you quickly update or isolate outdated operating systems and programs from the public network.
