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.

Laplink Partners with Microsoft to Provide Free Windows XP Data Transfer Tool

With end of Windows® XP support just around the corner, an exciting announcement was revealed on Microsoft’s blog today—Laplink® Software will be partnering with Microsoft to provide Windows XP users with a free tool, PCmover® Express for Windows XP, to help users move off of Windows XP quickly and easily.

XPPCmover

“As the end of support for Windows XP on April 8 nears we’re continuing to focus on ensuring customers are aware of the deadline and helping them to migrate to a modern operating system such as Windows 8.1,” said Brandon LeBlanc, a Microsoft marketing communications manager, in the blog post today.

PCmover Express for Windows XP will copy files and settings from your Windows XP PC to a new PC running Windows 7, 8, or 8.1. Now, XP users won’t have to say goodbye to their music, family photos, videos, email, and even user profiles and personalized settings. PCmover Express transfers data across your home or work network, and allows XP users to customize exactly what to bring to the new PC and what to leave behind.

Windows XP users can download PCmover Express for free in English later this week from http://www.WindowsXP.com/. French, Italian, German, Spanish, and Japanese will be available later in March, with Korean, Chinese, Brazilian Portuguese, and Russian coming soon after that.

More updates will be coming soon! We’ll keep you posted.

Do You Know the Hidden Dangers of Moving off of Windows XP?

End of support for Windows XP begins on April 8, 2014. Those who choose to stay on XP after end of support will face an end to hot-fixes, technical assistance, and security updates. Sticking around on Windows XP is risky; reports point out that the lack of security updates will make it a hot target for hackers, viruses, and other malware. When Microsoft releases security updates for Windows 7 and 8, attackers will check and test Windows XP for those same vulnerabilities. If the vulnerabilities are shared, attackers will target these known security holes in XP because it won’t be receiving security patches.

Studies show that Windows XP users will be six times more likely to suffer from a virus or other malware. We at Laplink recommend that XP users upgrade their current operating system or transfer to a new PC. With PCmover, the move is seamless, so there’s no reason to face the risks that Windows XP will soon carry.
