I'm not sure if this is the correct place to ask this, but it seems to be the most appropriate one so here goes. I know that MS Access 2007 went EOL last year so no security updates will be forth coming. What I'm not sure of is how the MS Access 2007 Runtime is affected by all of this. My gut tells me that it is also EOL and non supported so that it presents a security risk. The reason I am asking is that my church is preparing to transfer to a new accounting program which uses the 2007 Runtime and will not run on anything newer and has no intentions of changing that. How much of a security risk is it to use the 2007 Runtime? And if it is a risk, does it make sense that the rest of the accounting software is suspect?
My fear is that since this is Church software that the developers are using the "God will protect you" security model (I've run into that before on church related software).
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I trust BleepingComputer with security related issues and considered this the site to be the best source of information on this.
Thanks in advance.
