According to this [article]( a VPN can protect you, if you’re using a software that is no longer supported.

It’s written:

*”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 Using outdated software is less of a risk when the computer is protected from most external attacks.”*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?

    There is a principle call “defence in depth” or sometime “layered security”. The idea is you don’t rely on one type of protection but make sure you have multiple redundant, often independent, levels of protection for your systems. This even includes administrative controls just as staff training and policies. If there is some way your security can be improved without reducing accessibility for end users do it.

    In short use the VPN but also patch your software.
