According to this [article](https://www.atebits.com/what-should-you-do-if-your-favorite-software-is-no-longer-supported/) a VPN can protect you, if you’re using a software that is no longer supported.
*”Hackers can’t exploit a computer if they can’t find it and can’t access the connection. This is where VPN software comes in handy. Using outdated software is less of a risk when the computer is protected from most external attacks.”*
Is it true?
