XP Z: Microsoft scares Windows XP users straight with undead bug warning
Posted on: 08/17/2013 08:31 AM

Microsoft warned Windows XP customers that they face never-patched, never-dead "zero-day" vulnerabilities if they don't dump the 12-year-old operating system before its April 2014 retirement.

XP Z: Microsoft scares Windows XP users straight with undead bug warning


From Computerworld:
Call them the "walking dead" of vulnerabilities. Call it XP Z -- "Z" for zombies.

The warning -- just the latest in a two-year campaign to denigrate XP and convince users to leave it behind -- was similar to one given earlier this week by a long-time SANS security trainer, who predicted that hackers would save their vulnerabilities until after XP's retirement, then unleash them on unprotected PCs.
