Speaking with The Sun, Brian Higgins, a security specialist, said: “Unsupported software and hardware pose an incredible risk to consumers, because there is no protection from cyber criminals. And not all vulnerabilities will be common knowledge only among the criminal community, As users will not be able to download anti-virus software, unsupported devices will not accept any recent security patches, which makes them “incredibly vulnerable”.
Brian Higgins explains that Internet pirates can use pictures, social media, contacts and bank details, to earn money illegally.
Brian Higgins can also say it is shocking how quickly, with which phones can become out of date with security updates. For example, iPhone 6 and any older devices cannot be updated to the latest software iOS 13 From Apple. And the situation will be worse for “Android” phones, many of which stop receiving updates, after only two or 3 years.
