Microsoft to Profit as Millions of ATM Software Becomes Outdated

TheStreet (Mar. 17, 2014) — Major banks in the U.S. and U.K. have until April 8 to update software in their ATM network or risk a pricey invoice from Microsoft. As early as 2007, the tech giant warned its support for Windows XP would lapse, but since then only one-third of the world's ATMs have had their software upgraded. Once the deadline passes, banks will have to negotiate individual contracts to extend Microsoft support, an essential component to keep the machines secure from hacking and viruses.

Microsoft Ends Support for Windows XP, Leaves ATMs Vulnerable

TheStreet (Apr. 8, 2014) — In what's being called the death of Windows XP, Microsoft will no longer provide support for the operating system beginning today. Without Microsoft's security updates, computers running on XP will be left vulnerable to viruses and cyber attacks. That includes many of the nation's ATMs and small businesses still running on Windows XP. Microsoft is advising that XP users upgrade their current PC to run on Windows 8.1 if possible. If not, Microsoft encourages users to shop for a new computer. Video provided by TheStreet
