End of Microsoft support for Windows XP: make sure you use your Internet account safely
In line with the information presented on Microsoft websites, after cessation of technical assistance on 8 April 2014, Windows XP will continue to operate, yet computers may be exposed to malicious software and attacks of cyber-criminals in a greater degree -Learn more
In spite of using most recent versions of anti-virus software and Firewall, computers with the XP Windows operating system may be greatly susceptible to such attacks. Such attacks may result in theft of access data (log-ins and passwords) to transaction websites or, e.g. taking over control over the computer.
