Greetings,

As you likely know, Microsoft will discontinue extended support for Windows XP after April 8, 2014, effectively leaving 
those systems unpatched. Some are calling it a "perpetual zero day." [1]

The EDUCAUSE/Internet2 Higher Education Information Security Council - Technologies, Operations and Practices Group is 
collecting different detection and mitigation strategies in order to provide a resource to the community.

Please consider filling out this anonymous[2] survey to help create this resource for the good of the higher ed 
information security community:
