Windows XP received a Malicious Software Removal Tool update

Softpedia writes Microsoft rolled out a June 2014 update to the Malicious Software Removal Tool for Windows XP. This marks the second time that the software giant issued an update for Windows XP, even though the operating system hit the end of its life cycle on April 8, 2014. Two weeks after that date Microsoft issued a security patch to fix a critical security flaw in Internet Explorer, claiming it decided to make the patch available for XP because it was so close to the EOL (end-of-life) date.
As McAkins Online noted, the company still delivered a June 2014 update to the Malicious Software Removal Tool as part of this month's Patch Tuesday rollout, while Security Essentials continues to receive updates as promised.

Redmond said earlier this year that Security Essentials would live on until mid-2015, but no new installations are allowed, so only computers that are already running the anti-virus software are still getting updates.
