Lifecycle Security Update Policy


Microsoft is committed to providing products with improved security. Our long-term goal is to remove security vulnerabilities from all our products before they are released. Although we strive to remove vulnerabilities during development, software vulnerabilities remain a fact today and we must be prepared to respond when they are discovered. Microsoft advises customers to install the latest product releases and updates, security updates, and service packs to remain as secure as possible. Microsoft may be unable to provide security updates for older products, leaving them at risk in the face of more demanding security requirements.
