Prevent a worm by updating Remote Desktop Services

 

I can't believe Microsoft's dedication to fix security holes on Windows XP. It's been out of support since 2012 (?) but they still released a patch for Windows XP.

Any POI factory users still running WinXP? If you are, get the patch.

I stopped using XP about 2

I stopped using XP about 2 years ago because it was no longer being supported. It's amazing that they are still pushing out patches for it.

Still using XP PRO

I have a specialized (VCDS) program which plugs into the OBD II port on any VAG cars. Still use XP but never ever connect to the internet with this single purpose dedicated laptop.

Probably worried about bad publicity

If Worm spread and word got out

XP became obsolete to me

XP became obsolete to me when I couldn't find a working XP web browser, that kept up to date. Kept getting the "Your browser is out of date, please update" Then I had no option to update, because of no support.

Moved to Windows 7.
