Re: There's still life in this
@Eamon_Walsh1,... if I understand you, I would advise you or anyone else trying to use those patches designed for Windows XP POS\Embedded systems not to risk using them in production... nothing lasts forever, it's (past) time to let it go. IMO, these are the decisions management make, thus bringing security down in an organization, because all it takes is one voice to make this case for using those patches in production "but...we can get by for 5 more years..." when the reality is you probably should have began the move from XP 5 years ago. So, what is your POV on Windows 2003 Server, you know it sundowns 7/14/2015... think you can tough it out for 5 more years?

Please do not take this as an attack against you, but this is a battle that was very hard to convience anyone that MS would actually sundown XP, and now we're coming up on 2003 Server... not to mention unsupported DB and other apps, and this is just not Microsoft. So now (yeah, now) we're developing a software lifecycle to address these problems, but first we have to prove we can follow our own rules.

There's still life in this
Between all the hollering for OS upgrades, not only has it emerged that using POS you can effectively bypass the entire XP sunset for almost 5 more years of sun, but critical vulnerabilities to this plan. Cue, madcap patching and nice-sounding but really 'damage control' work. Let's hope there's less to it that anticipated. Meanwhile, unofficial XP SP4 patches come about too ..  bit.ly/10x8en6
