Office 2003 Could Be Hacker’s Playground

With the end of support for Microsoft Office 2003 coming in April 2014, a lot of businesses could be vulnerable to malicious attacks.  Just like Windows XP, Office 2003 will no longer receive security updates or bug fixes.

But a lot of home and business users are perfectly happy with Office 2003 and aren’t in any hurry to change. Especially businesses who might have to retrain their employees to use the completely different interface of programs like Office 2013.

But businesses using Office 2013 will likely be a prime target for attacks, putting their date and their customer’s data at risk.
