Has Microsoft just PROVED why you should upgrade from XP?
Microsoft just published its January-to-June 2013 Security Intelligence Report (SIR).
(Yes, I was surprised at the timing, too, since we're already two thirds of the way through the next reporting period. But there you are, and here it is [PDF].)
I will dutifully declare that I have still to finish reading the report in full.
At 160 pages, even if some of them are blank, or contain corporate boilerplate, I just haven't got through it yet.
But I have read one of Microsoft's recent blog postings about the report, highlighting the part in which rates of malware infection and encounter are compared across the four flavours of client-side Windows: XP, Vista, 7 and 8.
The results seem to tell a pretty clear visual story about why you should get rid of Windows XP as soon as you can:
