    Alleged Windows XP source code leaked

    https://www.windowscentral.com/alleg...d-spread-4chan



    "We are investigating the matter," a Microsoft spokesperson told Windows Central in a statement.

    If the leak is legitimate, it could expose any remaining Windows XP-based systems to new attacks.
    Don't believe everything you think.

    Does that affect the code of Win7 at all?

    Some of the Win 7 code will be the same as or close to Windows XP code. The only real concern is that it might allow hackers to look for vulnerabilities that Microsoft won't patch, unless you are paying for extended Windows 7 support (which will run out eventually anyway).

    no, I don't have extended support. I've been trying to get Sandboxie to run, and I'll post it in the Interne forum
