If Microsoft goes on with their plan to end the support provided for their Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2003 R2, about 25 million payment cards are at risk. The main reason for this risk is the fact that the payment companies and gateways have been using the Windows Server 2003 for managing all their actions. The company is all set to end the support for Windows Server 2003 and R2 on July 2015. The issue will be mostly affected for cards issued by Nigerian banks as they use Windows Server 2003.
According to the details posted in the Windows online support forums, Microsoft has been supporting the server operating system for a long time. But, the company will cease to provide any kind of support to the customers after July 2015, when the lifespan of the operating system expires. This means that about 25 million cards that are issued by 23 Nigerian banks will be at the risk of attacks from cyber criminals if adequate measures are not taken.
With the security patches for the devices ending soon, the banks will be left open to attacks from malicious users as there will not be any more security patches and fixes for the operating system. Windows online support site suggests that all Window Server 2003 users better upgrade to a newer version or they will have to face gruesome consequences. One of the major consequences with the end of support for Windows Server 2003 is that it possesses a big threat to local financial services that are in partnership with global platforms like Visa and MasterCard.
Mr. Gbenga Iluyemi, the Chief Executive Officer of Wragby Business Solutions & Technologies Limited stated on the issue as follows, “Payment cards, Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) in the country that run on Windows Server 2003 will be impacted, from a security perspective, if they are not migrated to a latest technology platform. Between now and 2015, it is crucial for companies to make adequate plans. They will need to migrate to Windows 2008 or Windows 2012 R2. You need to do an assessment of how many servers are running on the platform. You need to understand how many apps are sitting on the server. After that, you can do a risk assessment before deciding which of the latest platform to adopt.”
This means that you have just few months to upgrade your whole system to a new platform or you will be at the mercy of hackers and malicious users.Read more »
You may have heard of the Quick Access Bar. This is a lightweight program for the Windows operating system that adds a toolbar with the folder links to the top of the Windows desktop. By default, the toolbar will be displayed all the time, with options to auto-hide the toolbar in program options. You will have to configure the entries and folders that you need to have quick access to in the program options. The program will display the preselected entries that include all hard drives and optical drives on the computer, plus often used folders like My Documents folder, Control Panel and the Recycle Bin. This was confirmed after contacting the Windows support number.
The plus button that is located on the right hand side of the section in options opens up a file and folder browser so that each of the folders or files that are accessible on the computer can be added to the toolbar. The program options contain settings to change the opening speed and delay, the positioning and the color of the toolbar. The users can snap the toolbar to the bottom or side of the desktop as well, instead of snapping to the top. The display on the sides will take some getting used to as it is much more difficult to read the file and folder names in this layout.
A click on any of the folders in the bar opens that folder in Windows Explorer. The files are executed automatically. There is no need for the Quick Access Bar in Windows 7 anymore, as the users can add the files and folders that they access regularly to the taskbar of Windows 7 operating system. The users of Windows XP or Vista on the other hand might like the idea of another option to load programs or to open folders with the help of the Quick Access Bar. Those Windows users who would like to try Quick Access Bar can download the application from the website of the developer. This application is compatible with all the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the Windows operating system.
If you wish to know more about using the Quick Access Bar or downloading and installing it on your PC, you can contact the Windows support number. The support technician will be able to help you download and install the application on your computer without any issues.Read more »
