    Windows XP Microsoft Security Essentials Available via MS Update


    So today, I decided to patch up my Windows XP netbook and came across Microsoft Security Essentials in the Software section. I thought Windows XP End of Support (April 8) was the day that MS would stop providing downloads for MSE, so I wondered if it was just an installer, so I checked the update and installed it. It turned out to be the whole program. Is this a loophole that MS didn't close?

    MSE is getting updates until 2015, in which point it will be discontinued
