Microsoft Ending Support for Windows XP in April
Microsoft® will end support of its Windows® XP computer operating system on April 8, 2014. This means Microsoft will no longer provide patches to fix bugs found in the system. Patches will still be made available to large enterprises that have paid for special support contracts, but the average user will no longer have that option.
With the overwhelming media attention given to the security breach experienced by Target, it would be difficult not to think about the security of our personal information. I want to take a moment to remind everyone of a few tips to help minimize your risk.
Guard your information as you would your cash. This includes the obvious such as account numbers, passwords, PINs, and Social Security number, but also items such as your mother's maiden name or anything you may use as an answer to a security question. Don't utilize the same PIN and/or password for numerous accounts. Reconcile your bank and credit card statements as soon as you receive them. Make a copy of any credit cards you carry with you; in case of theft you now have the contact information for your cards. Check your credit report at least once a year. Each of the major nationwide credit reporting companies are required to provide, upon request, one free copy of your credit report every 12 months. Go to www.annualcreditreport.com to request your copy.
