Here Is Why You Can’t Keep Using Microsoft Outlook 2003 or Windows XP After April 8, 2014
No more support means no more security patches or updates. Which in turn means security gaps and a continually increasing risk of a security breach. So don’t wait to be hacked. I mean, technically, you “can” continue to use the software. No one will stop you. But here is why you should upgrade now instead of waiting for something bad to happen.
Think of software updates as your goalie. A goalie stops the opposition from scoring. No more software updates means no goalie in your net, which means the opposing team (hackers, identity theft criminals, spammers) can score against your system easily.
And with each month or so without software updates which patch security vulnerabilities, that goalie net gets larger and larger, making it easier and easier for them to score against you. Keep your goalie in play with an Outlook 2003 and/or Windows XP upgrade before April 8, 2014.
