New Internet Explorer Bug Exposed – Laplink Helps Vulnerable XP Users

IEBug

A new vulnerability affecting Internet Explorer 6 through 11 users was discovered just this past weekend. The bug can grant hackers access to a PC, likely allowing them to install programs, create accounts, and view, change, or delete user data. It has already been exploited against U.S. financial and defense companies, resulting in the U.S. government issuing a strong warning about the risks of using these versions of Internet Explorer.

Microsoft is aware of the problem and is working on a patch. However, since support for Windows XP ended earlier this month, those who still using Windows XP are out of luck.

This bug is just the first in what could be a long list of vulnerabilities that will remain open for hackers, viruses, and malware to target XP users. It’s also a clear indication that the end of support doesn’t only affect the operating system, but other applications like browsers, too. Continue reading

The End of Windows XP is Here!

Starting today, Windows XP users will no longer receive technical assistance, security updates, or hot-fixes to their PCs. This leaves Windows XP users vulnerable to hackers, viruses, and other malware until they upgrade or migrate quickly to a different version of Windows.

While Windows has been an extremely successful and popular operating system since its release in 2001, it’s time for XP users to move to a newer, more reliable, and more secure operating system. Laplink offers several affordable tools to make that process easy, while allowing a high degree of customization.

How to Move Off of Windows XP

The end of support for Windows XP is now less than a week away! If you’re still running Windows XP on April 8th, you’ll see an end to technical support, hot-fixes, and security updates for your PC, leaving your data vulnerable to hackers and malware. No matter how you want to move off of Windows XP, Laplink can help you move quickly without losing your programs, files, and settings.

The Problem

Windows Easy Transfer – Severely Deprecated
Windows Easy Transfer was a free, go-to tool for many Microsoft users looking to upgrade. However, support for Windows Easy Transfer has been deprecated significantly in favor of cloud solutions. Windows Easy Transfer doesn’t support upgrades from 32-bit systems to 64-bit systems, which is a problem since most XP machines run on 32-bit and newer PCs are 64-bit.

Windows 7 – No Direct Upgrades
There is no direct upgrade solution from Microsoft to go from Windows XP to Windows 7. You can manually move using external media but requires extensive time and effort to transfer only your files and settings to an external storage device, then transfer that data again to your new PC.
