All good things must eventually come to an end and Windows operating systems are no exception!
Recently I blogged regarding Google Chrome security alerts, specifically about SHA1 & SHA2 certificates and how they are applicable to coreplus, click here to read that article. On the 26th of February 2015 coreplus will be moving to the newer SHA2 certificate which will provide a more secure environment, the SHA2 certificates however do not support Windows 2000 or versions of Windows XP that do not have Service Pack 3 installed.
To ensure that you can practice happy coreplus will be ending support of the Windows 2000 operating system as of the 5th of February 2015. Additionally if you intend to use coreplus and have Windows XP it must have Service Pack 3 or greater installed or you will not be able to access coreplus. Instructions on how to upgrade your Windows XP to Service Pack 3 can be found here.
If you are still using Windows XP even with Service Pack 3 it is advisable to consider upgrading to a newer operating system as soon as possible as Windows XP is no longer supported by Microsoft, find out more here.
