What Does This Mean For Me?

 

The threat of cyberattack is relentless and evolving. Cyberattackers are constantly scanning for unprotected computers to infiltrate.

In response, Microsoft’s engineers are always releasing security patches for new vulnerabilities. These updates are often installed on your computer in the background, and often without bothering you.

Computers still running Windows 7 after January 14th 2020 will be left vulnerable to attack. Known backdoors and new vulnerabilities that are detected will no longer be fixed, leaving your systems open to threats such as ransomware, cryptoviruses, and trojans.
