Microsoft announced the end of extended support will be on January 14, 2020 for Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 and Exchange 2010. This means that these operating systems and services will no longer be patched or supported. This makes devices with these operating systems and services a threat to your network because vulnerabilities and exploits are never fixed.
WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT
You can upgrade your computers and laptops to Windows 10. Servers can be upgraded to Windows 2012 R2 or higher. Exchange 2010 can be upgraded to Exchange 2013 or higher.
It is recommended that all computers, laptops and servers have the latest antivirus, antimalware, strong passwords and any end of life software does not access the internet to minimize the chance of compromise.
