    May, 1st 2014, Microsoft has released patches for the latest critical security vulnerability plaguing Internet Explorer, including for Windows XP. “Even though Windows XP is no longer supported by Microsoft and is past the time we normally provide security updates, we’ve decided to provide an update for all versions of Windows XP (including embedded), today. We made this exception based on the proximity to the end of support for Windows XP. The reality is there have been a very small number of attacks based on this particular vulnerability and concerns were, frankly, overblown. Unfortunately this is a sign of the times and this is not to say we don’t take these reports seriously. We absolutely do” Adrienne Hall, General Manager, Trustworthy Computing, Microsoft
