Windows XP Users Should Upgrade

windows-xp-iconUsers of Microsoft Windows XP are reminded that they should upgrade to a supported operating system. Approximately a year ago, Windows XP reached its End of Life (EOL) support meaning that Microsoft no longer releases system patches or service packs. New vulnerabilities will go unpatched and provide new ways for bad actors to attack the now 12-year-old operating system. By continuing its use, XP users are assuming a high level of risk for themselves and the entire campus community. At some point in the near future, XP devices will be shut off of the URI network to protect the rest of the campus community.

For more information on EOL deadlines for both Windows XP and Windows Server 2003, contact the Help Desk at 874-HELP (874-4357) or click here for details.
