FBI worried about Windows 7
One of the biggest problems of today is that the operating systems were not in the past and received updates. A similar situation is currently happening in Windows 7.
Microsoft’s end of support for Windows 7 on January 14 left organizations using Windows 7 in a difficult situation. With the discontinuation of Microsoft support, no security updates are released for Windows 7 anymore. This creates security vulnerabilities for Windows 7 systems.
In the warning made by the FBI, organizations using Windows 7 were warned to upgrade their operating systems. As Windows 7 Professional and Enterprise will continue to receive security updates by January 2023, the FBI has indicated that organizations using Windows 7 should switch to it.
Microsoft, who wants users to switch to Windows 10, is also working to prevent Windows 7 users from suffering. However, the interruption of security updates shows that users should be very careful about this.
