As you may have heard, Microsoft stopped supporting Windows XP and Office 2003 effective Tuesday, April 8th. http://ow.ly/vMo7E Why is this a big deal?
No more security patches: Criminals will be leveraging devices running Windows XP and Office 2003 as an easy entry point into computer networks.
Why? Because Microsoft will no longer be releasing security patches for known security holes. Here is Microsoft’s website on this topic.
Compliance: If your organization is subject to regulations that require you to protect financial, personal or healthcare information you will want to stay in compliance by upgrading where needed to a secure version of Windows and Office.
Working from home: If you work from home, or have a home-based business, it makes sense to take the appropriate measures to protect your home network as well by replacing outdated devices and software with new ones.

Massive Open Source Internet Security Flaw Affects Two Thirds of All Web Sites http://ow.ly/vBRLF News began circulating yesterday about a flaw in OpenSSL that impacts about two thirds of the Internet's web sites. The bug, nicknamed Heartbleed, has actually been around for two years, but has just recently hit the spotlight due to increased awareness of security issues from high profile cases.

Originally identified by a team of independent security engineers at Codenomicon and Google, several companies are racing to overcome the bug, including Microsoft, Yahoo, PayPal, and Amazon.

CRA services site offline due to internet security bug is a dramatic over reaction to a hypothetical threat. http://ow.ly/vBs8N The Canada Revenue Agency has shut down public access to its electronic services website over security concerns related to the "Heartbleed Bug," a newly discovered software flaw that has made information on many of the world’s major websites vulnerable to theft.
