Microsoft Office 2007 Is Not Safe

What is the root issue here?

On October 10, 2017, Microsoft changed the status of Office 2007 to “End-of-Life”. This means that there are no new security updates, non-security updates, free or paid assisted support options or online technical content updates. When hackers identify bugs in Office 2007, Microsoft will not fix them. These older versions are unsafe to use and are not HIPAA compliant.

Who does this effect?

Everyone that uses Office 2007 – home and business users alike.

What do I need to do?

Customers who are using Office 2007 products and services should move to Office 365 or upgrade to supported versions of Office products and services, such as Office 2016.

I’d like a little more information/confirmation, please.
