Internet Explorer Extended Support Ends

13 Jan 2016 12:16 by Alexander John

As of 12 January 2016, Microsoft has stopped supporting a large number of legacy versions of Internet Explorer. From the 12th January 2016, Microsoft will only provide security updates for the most current version of Internet Explorer for a supported operating system.

Broadly speaking, this means Microsoft will no longer provide support for Internet Explorer 8, 9 or 10 apart from the following exceptions:

  • Internet Explorer 9 on Windows Vista SP2
  • Internet Explorer 9 on Windows Server 2008 (incl R2)
  • Internet Explorer 10 (IE10) on Windows Server 2012

If you are still using one of the affected versions - and a substantial number of users are - you should upgrade as a matter of priority.

If you are unable to upgrade, you could consider using an alternative web browser like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Opera (others are available). Using an alternative browser will not address the potential security exposure of an unsupported version of Internet Explorer.
