Yes that is how I see it.  I know nothing other than pulling the plug is 100% 
secure but that doesn’t mean we need to be complacent either.

 

I think it is time to put an end date on XP compatibility for DX4WIN.

John,

I suspect you already know the answer to your question. Yes, the security is 
weakened. Using a 17 year old

operating system connected to the Internet is not a recommended practice. 
Microsoft no longer supports the XP OS.

Weakening security for a small group of users puts everyone else at risk.

 

73, Mike W1USN

So how does that affect security for all of this.  Have we now all been put at 
more risk to satisfy those who want to run obsolete systems?

XP users should try the update again ; Scott, KA9FOX, changed the website such 
that the files directory no longer requires an https connection. —Paul, KK4HD
