Ubuntu 10.04 Reaches End of Life Support on 30th April
Posted by Liam Docherty on 20 April 2015 10:28 AM

Ubuntu 10.04 officially ends it support life on 30th April 2015. What does this mean? Well, it’s now unsupported and no patches will be released for the latest security issues and bugs found by the creators.

If you are running Ubuntu 10.04 on your server, your website(s) and other properties are at high risk of being hacked and corrupted.

CWCS advise that all customers running Ubuntu 10 upgrades their operating system. In some cases an upgrade of the OS is possible, but in others, potentially your server has to be upgraded too.

If you're unsure if this applies to you, or for more advice, contact the sales team today to discuss your options. CWCS is able to assist you with the upgrade.
