Cyber Security

Last week, Matthew Agnew from IT Weapons wrote a great post on Microsoft ending all support for one of the most popular server operating systems, Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2.  After January 14, 2020 there will be no more security updates, making systems that run these operating systems a magnet for cybersecurity threats – consequently putting businesses at risk.  Cyber criminals absolutely know this event is occurring and will attempt to exploit this weakness in vulnerable environments.  This happened two years ago with the WannaCry ransomware attack, which exploited organizations that did not patch, or were running an end-of-service Microsoft operating system.  WannaCry exploited vulnerable systems and infected them with ransomware, which caused an estimated $4 Billion in damages.     from Konica Minolta
