Java support over for Windows XP

[ Edited ]

 

Summary: UPDATED. The regularly scheduled quarterly security updates for Java on July 15 will not include updates for Windows XP, which is now formally unsupported by Oracle.

 

Oracle has quietly ended all support for Java on Windows XP.

As a result, the quarterly security updates scheduled for July 15 will not include any fixes for Windows XP.

In an FAQ on the Java site the company states that Microsoft's end of support for Windows XP is the reason for Oracle's decision to end support. Users may still run Java 7 at their own risk. Java 8, the next major version, will not be available for Windows XP.

In a press release, Morten Kjaersgaard, CEO of Danish IT security firm Heimdal Security says that after the updates are applied, Java will no longer load on Windows XP. The new Java versions will be 7u65 and 8u11, according to Kjaersgaard.

Re: Java support over for Windows XP

There are still, I believe, a frightening number of corportate terminals running Windows XP at this time.  Even more frightenting is that I would guess a majority of those also use programs that require Java.......

 

Time to upgrade is long past, but now it is really a bit urgent.
