So it appears the first major bug to hit since Microsoft ended support for Windows XP is here. PC World reported that hackers have discovered a Windows XP vulnerability that can put users of Windows XP at risk. It has been only three weeks since Microsoft ended support for the mature operating system.
Many users are reluctant to make the change to a newer operating system and are now at risk of this new drive by infection. The bug affects Internet Explorer versions 6-11 and Windows XP runs versions 6-8 but there will be no patch from Microsoft for Windows XP. Windows Vista and above will receive security patches but if you are still running XP, you're effectively on your own.
