NEW YORK — Microsoft ended support of Windows XP on Tuesday, leaving the many still clinging to the outdated software exposed to cyberattacks.

The danger now is that hackers who find bugs in XP will be able to exploit them freely.

An estimated 95 percent of bank ATMs run on XP. GE Intelligent Platforms, which sells industrial software, discovered 75 percent of its utility customers still use it. Cybersecurity provider Cylance says one of its clients is a major hospital where XP is still on more than 100,000 devices, including computers that hold patient records.

That's because XP was the last good operating system they put out. Now they're trying to force everyone onto the latest crap they've foisted on the market.

Is this true? I thought I heard yesterday they were still going to provide virus support.
