Windows 7 is officially dead, now that Microsoft has ended support for the operating system -- which means no more security updates or patches. Despite this, an estimated 200 million devices are still running the out-of-date system, and a malware campaign is targeting IoT devices still using it, according to a new report from TrapX Security. The malware used in the campaign is a self-spreading downloader, which runs malicious scripts as part of the Lemon_Duck PowerShell malware variant family. At this point, it has targeted a range of devices at manufacturing sites, including smart printers, smart TVs, and automated guided vehicles (AGVs), the report found.
