Windows 7: Avast Warns of 'Data Breach Crisis' as XP Support Ends

Avast Warns of 'Data Breach Crisis' as XP Support Ends

We're pretty convinced that if Microsoft hasn't already decided to make an about-face on its decision to officially throw Windows XP into end-of-life status, it's not going to change its mind in the next 18 days.

But, as the saying goes, you miss 100 percent of the shots you don't take and Avast Software has issued a warning about XP's demise.

Ondrej Vlcek, Avast's chief operations officer, took to his company's blog a few days ago to discuss all of the trends that Avast is seeing — or pondering — as a result of Windows XP losing Microsoft's support in a few weeks. While he's not outright calling for Microsoft to reverse its decision, he does, as you might expect, go into a bit of detail about how Avast is working to patch that which Microsoft no longer plans to address.
