Computing Services recognizes that users may choose to continue using unsupported operating systems on campus and choose to continue using unsupported systems for connecting to University computing resources from remote locations despite the fact that neither Computing Services nor Microsoft supports these systems anymore.
Running these unsupported systems without up to date antivirus software would pose a significant threat to the University computing infrastructure.
