NHS Still Us­ing Win­dows XP

‘Help us to ruin some­one else’s day’

Micro Mart - - Google Fact Check -

The vast ma­jor­ity of NHS Trusts are us­ing Win­dows XP sys­tems, de­spite Mi­crosoft hav­ing stopped sup­port for the OS over two years ago.

This has come to light thanks to a Free­dom of In­for­ma­tion re­quest from soft­ware firm Citrix and 24 of the Trusts are re­ported to be ad­di­tion­ally not sure when they will move from Win­dows XP. With no se­cu­rity up­dates or fixes from Mi­crosoft, this surely means that the Trusts’s sys­tems are some­what more vul­ner­a­ble to se­cu­rity is­sues or hack­ing?
