this operating system by Microsoft ended July 14th, 2015.

Lack of support implies that no new security patches for the product
will be released by the vendor. As a result, it is likely to contain
security vulnerabilities. Furthermore, Microsoft is unlikely to
investigate or acknowledge reports of vulnerabilities.
