Software which support is terminated becomes a nest of illegal access
The software in which support is terminated won’t be supported even if the security vulnerability will be discovered.
To keep the status is the large-scale threat for not only the Center but also Kyoto University.
According to the information security policy of Kyoto University, we have a responsibility for doing the countermeasure for information security vulnerabilities. Therefore, basically, the use of software in which support is terminated isn’t permitted in Kyoto University network.
