According to Avast Software, a survey of 600K Windows based systems has shown that the number Windows XP infected with rootkits is out of proportion to the OS’s market share. The majority of these infections are on XP systems running Service Pack 2 (SP2) or earlier. Microsoft stopped supporting SP2 with security patches over a year ago, leaving them vulnerable to many different types of viruses and malware. SP3 is still supported and has a higher level of security. The original article can be found here.
If you are running SP2 or want to ensure your system is secure then contact us and we can thoroughly go over your system and make sure it has all the current patches installed!
