  • OT: Windows 7 & Google Security risk growing greater?

    https://security.googleblog.com/2019...o-protect.html

    I don't run Windows 7. but lots of folks do. This may be concerning to them.

    Apparently not a problem for Windows 10.

    Given Microsoft history, I expect that Win 10 has a number of vulnerabilities that are currently known only to hackers, NSA, and foreign agencies.

      I run Win7 but 64 bit so not an issue.

              I don't use google, nor run any kind of windows. I remain unconcerned.

                This is why I won't use anything newer than Windows 3.1. No one bothers with it so the risk is going down.
