Microsoft extends MSE updates to 2015

Software giant Microsoft has recently announced it will continue to provide software updates (signatures and engine updates) to its Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) security products for Windows XP users until 14th July 2015.

Microsoft will still continue with its current support lifecycle plan to end technical assistance for Windows XP on 8th April 2014, but effectively this recent announcement allows current Windows XP users to continue using XP for another year whilst still being protected with current updates.

Although, Microsoft will stop providing MSE for download for Windows XP from 8th April 2014.
