An Urgent Security Warning for Businesses Running
Windows XP, Office 2003, and
Microsoft Windows Server 2003!
Windows XP and Office 2003 are no longer supported by the manufacturer.
Server 2003 will no longer be supported by the manufacturer after April 2015.
If your business or organization is currently running Windows XP, Office 2003, Microsoft Server 2003, or Exchange 2003 on any computers or servers in your office, you need to know about a dangerous security threat that must be addressed NOW!
PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO READ THIS IMPORTANT SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT!
As your local Microsoft Partner, we are reaching out to all local businesses that use any of these programs to alert you to this serious security risk and inform you about what you need to do NOW to protect your company or organization!
WINDOWS XP AND OFFICE 2003
REPLACEMENTS MUST BE MADE NOW
WINDOWS SERVER 2003 AND EXCHANGE 2003
REPLACEMENTS MUST BE MADE BY JULY 14, 2015
Microsoft has officially announced that it retired all support for Windows XP and Office 2003 April 2014, and on the Server 2003 operating system on July 14, 2015.
This means any business still running any of these programs will be completely exposed to serious hacker attacks, aimed at taking control of your network, stealing data, crashing your system, and inflicting a host of other business-crippling problems you do NOT want to deal with.
This is such a serious threat that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has issued an official warning to all companies still running these programs, because firewalls and antivirus software will NOT be sufficient to completely protect your business from malicious attacks or data-exfiltration. Running some of these programs will also put many organizations out of compliance.
