The latest word from the IT Security compliance people, concerning computers whose operating systems (OS) are too old to patch:

OS out of support is not a valid business justification for a system to remain out of support.


Just because the OS is not supported is no reason to classify the machine as out of support.

In the words of Timon, AM I MISSING SOMETHING HERE??

Timon's exact words were "DID I MISS SOMETHING?!" Yes, I watched enough times to be certain to this day.

Interesting post title.

I'm sure you're right, if only because it's a punchier version of the line.

Of all the words of wisdom in that movie, the one I use most from day to day is 'You got to put your behind in your past.'

What, you've never written a security patch without training and access to the source code and full documentation?!? Sissy! ;-)

Just build a firewall around it. :-P

On second thoughts, get some four-by-fours, build a supporting frame for the hardware and you're OK. :)

The firewall's there, but the rationale of "You can't say the system OS is out of support just because the system OS is out of support" leaves little mindboggles all over my carpet.
