FBI Tells US Companies To Update To Windows 10 Now

Microsoft ended support for Windows 7 earlier this year. Windows 10 had become very prevalent prior to this, so the majority of companies had already updated to a supported version. However, there have been a lot of home users and some companies, that refuse to update to the latest version. Now, the FBI has issued a warning for users of Windows 7. Part of the warning reads…

“Continuing to use Windows 7 within an enterprise may provide cyber criminals access in to computer systems. As time passes, Windows 7 becomes more vulnerable to exploitation due to lack of security updates and new vulnerabilities discovered. With fewer customers able to maintain a patched Windows 7 system after its end of life, cyber criminals will continue to view Windows 7 as a soft target.”
