Here is something directly from the PCI Security Guide section 6.2: Ensure that all system components and software are protected from known vulnerabilities by installing applicable vendor-supplied security patches. Install critical security patches within one month of release.
What does the “end-of-support” mean?
PCI Data Security Standard states that all systems used by parties processing credit cards be patched and supported by their respective vendors. Clients not using a supported operating system are not PCI compliant and must update to a supported operating system immediately. To sum this up, you will not be in the scope of PCI compliance and could face fines.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of security standards designed to ensure that ALL companies that accept, process, store or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment.
