The End Of Microsoft XP Support Will Be A Profitable Gold Mine For Hackers

You’ve heard the warnings about the impending end of support for Windows XP, and Microsoft has attempted to increase the number of its Windows 8 sold copies; however, Windows XP still holds a remarkable 37% market share of desktop operating systems. According to security expert Jason Fossen, the average price on the black market for a Windows XP exploit is said to be around $50,000 to $150,000.

When Microsoft ends support for Windows XP, it will no longer be providing security patches, therefore leaving it wide open for hackers to attack. Even though support is ending April 8th, 2014, Microsoft hasn’t abandoned the operating system yet. There are almost weekly critical security updates being prepared for those that still use Windows XP.  But it will all end in April 2014, leaving Windows XP unprotected.
