April’s Microsoft Patch Tuesday is on par with the prior releases this year. There are only four bulletins being released, two rated “Critical” and two rated “Important”. Of course the long coming, but somehow still apocalyptic news that Windows XP is dead has overshadowed these bulletins.
So this is it. We’ve been warned. And warned and warned. Today marks the last day that Microsoft will issue public patches for Windows XP, even though XP still represents almost 30% of all desktop installations and anywhere from 80-95% of the world’s ATMs.
