Antimalware Support for Windows XP and the January 2014 Security Bulletin Webcast and Q&A

Today we’re publishing the January 2014 Security Bulletin Webcast Questions & Answers page.  We answered 16 questions in total, with the majority of questions focusing on the Dynamics AX bulletin (MS14-004), the update for Microsoft Word (MS14-001) and the re-release of the Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 updates provided through MS13-081.

We also wanted to point out a new blog from the Microsoft Malware Protection Center (MMPC) detailing support antimalware support for Windows XP beyond April 8, 2014. Although there will be no new security updates for Windows XP after this date, Microsoft will continue to  provide updates to our antimalware signatures and engine for Windows XP users through July 14, 2015.

We invite you to join us for the next scheduled webcast on Wednesday, February 12, 2014, at 11 a.m. PST (UTC -8), when we will go into detail about the February bulletin release and answer your bulletin deployment questions live on the air.
