If you are in a position where you have to continue use of one of these vulnerable products, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Apply the last round of patches
  • Limit use of the vulnerable machine
  • Limit internet exposure of the vulnerable machine (IE: disconnect internet when not in use, or completely if you are able)
  • Do not conduct online financial transaction on the vulnerable machine (IE: Banking, Ebay, Amazon, Paypal)
  • Do not visit social media sites on the vulnerable machine. Attackers can use these credentials to gain further access or steal your identity
  • Any computer using XP or Office ’03 is vulnerable to hacking. Do not do anything on this machine you would not post on Facebook

It is zero hour for upgrades. If you have a computer that needs upgrading, or have an application or program that is forcing you to stay with XP or Office ’03, Call Us Today and we will schedule an emergency meeting with you and a consultant to discuss the best solution for protecting yourself, your data, your customers, and your business. 719.749.1112
