As we’ve noted before, the real risk to Windows XP users comes when vulnerabilities are patched in other versions of Windows, highlighting potential exploits that could be used on XP as well. The first time that can (potentially) happen is when May’s Patch Tuesday updates are revealed.

April’s collection includes four patches, two of which impact Windows and two of which cover Office vulnerabilities.
