Microsoft officially withdrew Windows XP support over a year ago, but that doesn't mean the operating system is now defunct. Far from it, in fact.
Last week V3 revealed that, despite the government not renewing its one-year support extension deal with Microsoft, many departments have still not migrated away from the OS, leaving computers vulnerable to attack.
Furthermore, the Met Police admitted that it still has 35,000 machines running XP, and is actively negotiating a support extension deal with Microsoft, no doubt at great cost to the tax payer.
Elsewhere, LG unveiled its latest smartphone, the G4, which has some impressive specs, particularly its camera, as the firm looks to tempt buyers away from Samsung and Apple.
In security news, WordPress released an emergency fix for a zero-day vulnerability that could have left millions of websites open to hijacking attacks in yet another example of the perils that businesses must face whatever tools they use.
