Microsoft Windows 7 / Server 2008 R2 Unsupported Version Detection

critical Nessus Plugin ID 122615
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote operating system is no longer supported.

Description

Microsoft Windows 7 or Server 2008 R2 is running on the remote host.
Microsoft ended support for Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2 on 1/14/2020.

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.

Solution

Upgrade to a version of Microsoft Windows that is currently supported.
