They could be totally trustworthy, I just don't know enough about them to make a judgement. I just prefer to wait before even considering trusting a 3rd party to install security updates on my PC. Does anyone know anything about the company?

I know nothing. Until we know something, I'll use my 3 Win7 machines w/o patches.

With MS updates, that's more of a blessing than a curse these days anyway!

Hi,

First time poster here. Highly doubt 0patch will be able to provide any real support other than editing existing binary files on Windows 7 installs to work around major 0 day exploits of interest to corporate clients.


They will certainly not be able to provide regular patches similar to what we currently get for all manner of Low to High severity issues on Win7.


0day wouldn't access to the Windows 7 source code for a start (nobody does), so anything they do will be 'hacking' existing binary files already present on your installation. And unless you have the exact same system baseline/patch level to what they'll be editing, I don't know how this will work.


Good on them for trying though - reading their blog they certainly know windows internals and the black art of binary dissassembly however.

I'm waiting to see what the obviously talented gentleman who gives us the Simplix update pack comes up with after next January.


Wouldn't surprise me if he finds a way to continue providing updates for Windows 7.

I wonder if someone would pay for the extended support and offer updates based on those to everyone. Anyway I don't trust the updates now so no thanks.

I wouldn't be surprised if they "accidentally" show up in a repository somewhere. I don't really know how MS is planning to distribute the ES update files to businesses though. I haven't looked into it. If they're still delivered as MSU files, I'm sure they'll be available somewhere.

In April this year, Microsoft began proactively notifying Windows 7 Home users about the approaching end of support deadline for Windows 7. Starting this week and rolling out over time, Microsoft will add certain Windows 7 Pro device users to its nag list.

As of this week, users of Windows 7 Pro devices that are not domain-joined will begin receiving notifications about the January 14, 2020 end-of-free-support deadline for Windows 7. Microsoft updated its March 2019 blog post about the next wave of Windows 7 notifications today, October 15, to let Windows 7 Pro users know what's coming.

The original end-of-life notification began appearing April 18. The notification took the form of a patch (KB4493132)

The notification let users know that "After 10 years, support for Windows 7 is nearing an end." It continues:
