Do you use Google’s Gmail? Do you use Google’s Chrome?
Do you use Windows XP or Vista?
We advised that uses of Windows XP and Windows Vista should discontinue use and upgrade to a more current version of the Windows operating system (Is my operating system obsolete?).
When Microsoft declares one of their operating systems to have reached their end of life, the support for the software is discontinued. Any vulnerabilities which researchers or cyber criminals may find will not be addressed. What this means, if you are using Windows XP or Windows Vista you are choosing to allow computer to be vulnerable to exploitation.
Google Chrome and Gmail
Google, realizing their Chrome browser and Gmail application are widely used, are unable to protect users who are using these operating systems, and thus are declaring their own versions which were compatible obsolete as of tomorrow, 08 February 2017.
