09 Apr Microsoft Warns Windows 7/8 Could be Dangerous
Do you use Windows 7/8? Microsoft says you are placing yourself in danger.
Microsoft warns users that the aging platform suffers from severe security deficiencies and hardware restrictions and that Microsoft’s support for the platform is ending.
“Today, Windows 7/8 does not meet the requirements of modern technology, nor the high-security requirements of IT departments,” says Markus Nitschke, Head of Windows at Microsoft Germany.
Microsoft stated that Windows 7/8 has long-outdated security architectures and warns any individuals and businesses running this program that it can be more susceptible to cyber-attacks. Microsoft also said that sticking with Windows 7/8 will result in higher operating costs for users due to problems with reliability and compatibility. Even a few manufacturers are actively shunning it.
