True sir... Was just joking anyway.
Seriously, I was about changing my mind saying it's expensive. He trades laptops. I trust him too.

I just gave him this spec: good laptop, good battery, within N20k, and he said it was available.

Could you guess what type of laptop that will be at such price?

I'm not good at knowing better brands so I didn't give him or asked and considering the price attached, and the trust for this guy, I believe he won't give me a bad one.

The responses I have read on this thread, just shows how backwards most of our youth are, in their thinking capacity.

The minister is saying that, to stay protected/defended when online (and when computing with sensitive data that you do want stolen), abstain from Windows 7 devices.

Because Microsoft has officially ended their support for Windows 7. Hence there will be no security updates, which is dangerous.

Because millions of unauthorised entry attempts happen on the World Wide Web everyday.

So, to stay safe, use Widows 10 devices, or upgrade your Windows 7 OS to Windows 10, easily...

Someone is even offerining to upgrade for 10k. When Windows 10 CD is 1K.


Last time I bought windows 10 cd, it was 200naira only, be like say u be ajebutter

Price well gan, u go buy 150

He is a fellow of British computer society and also a graduate of digital transformation from Harvard. Who are you?

Edit:
I forgot to mention he did courses at Cambridge and MIT. So I will ask again. Who are you oga temptnow abi wetin you call yourself?
Very immature lots, at least they should have checked his qualifications. How many of them can boast of having such intimidating CV?
He was just giving precautionary measures and they're just insulting him.

It may not work well

The best bet is to buy another system

If anyone who really cares about their online security still uses Windows 7, they can get a VPN or anti-malware.

However, the best bet is to buy another computer


Online security is a scam, Google has all ur data, not to mention all other companies that have your data as well plus those that have sold it

Then there's those that can get your data at a snap of their fingers, welcome to jet age

How else do you expect them to express their foolishness? Their comments on the first page will make you think there are no intelligent people on Nairaland. I can bet that some of them don't understand the Minister's warning.
I'm wondering where the guy who used "shithole, 3rd world country" resides for him to make such comments.
lol...some claim smart only to show their ignorance

In light of this, the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy Dr Isa Ali Ibrahim (Pantami), is alerting the general public on the risks of using Windows 7 powered devices for internet-based services that require the use of sensitive information such as internet banking. The best way to remain secure is to use the latest Operating Systems available.

undecided

There’s no such thing as secure online..

Anything & everything is hackable..

Will you prefer to rob cbn or my house if we both have the same amount of money inside?

Calm down

My data is safe with Google because it has a name to protect. Just as Diamond or GTB....they care about their reputations. No, they are not called reliable third parties for nothing.

If a cybercriminal gets a hold of your financial login parameters, we wouldn't be having this conversation here 'cause you will probably be out on the street, running up and down like a madman.

Don't be deceived, the difference is crystal clear.

Online security is not always dependent on the type of OS, your bank security and your personal security matters..

Window XP is still the best so far.

I have read a few quotes and it's not surprising seeing those who are not relevant to their immediate environment trying to paint the minister as less intelligent.
I pity some people who have grown their skulls full ignorance with zero light to objectivity trying so hard to make sense.

When someone in a position of knowledge warns you about something dangerous he is not trying to sound "intelligent to his fellow abokis" like some ignoramuses are trying to postulate even though he is;because people who thinks a northerner can never be brilliant except he is from their own ethniv stock will hardly get rid of their ethnic bias when it comes to basic fundamental issues.


I hate and dislike ethnic bigots alot.
They are a stain to humanity.

No existing windows operating system that is not exploitable, this is an attention seeking post. After Microsoft patched externalblue exploitable via smb port, many other vulnerabilities were discovered, some are not even public yet and even windows 10 is vulnerable.

Even windows xp is still well protected, that Microsoft stoppped providing security updates and protection for it doesn’t mean that it’s vulnerable, they tell you that to force you to upgrade.

Mistaicey2288:
Hmmm his points are actually valid and backed up with good reasons too. He never said people should stop using Windows 7 devices... He only warned the users to be more careful with it by taking some measures like using security softwares, using latest application updates etc because Microsoft already ended support for the windows 7 devices since 14th last month and will no longer provide technical support to them.


That being said, but who still uses Windows 7 device at this present time though?

Banks
