Last security update for Windows XP

Rochester, N.Y. Computers running the Windows XP operating system received their last security update Tuesday.

Experts say this could make computers vulnerable to cyber-attacks, and is a cause of concern for ATMs and health organizations that use XP for medical records. An estimated 25 percent of business computers still use 12-year-old XP.

Innovative Solutions is an IT firm that has been advising businesses for months to upgrade their systems.

And for those who haven't upgraded, an expert recommends staying off the internet and email at work.

For $100, home PC owners can upgrade to a newer version of Windows and continue getting security updates.

The end of XP support is expected to hit businesses harder than consumers.

There are ways to keep XP updates coming, but Tzimas says that would cost tens of thousands of dollars.
