Windows XP, Office 2003 deadline looms

Hamish Barwick | April 4, 2014
Microsoft has issued a reminder that security patches, software updates and technical support for Windows XP and Office 2003 ends next week on 8 April.

According to Miller, there is an opportunity for hackers to make "significant financial gains" from a zero-day vulnerability that will never be patched.

"This vulnerability has the potential to build large scale botnets. Access to these compromised machines can be leased out for their processing power or network bandwidth for denial of service attacks."
