*Since Windows XP (32 and 64-bit) is not supported any longer by Microsoft and will not be updated any more against security leaks, CyberGhost ended its support as well. Users are asked to update to a modern Windows platform.
Please also note that Microsoft stops delivering security updates for Windows Vista, beginning April 11th, 2017. From that day on CyberGhost also stopped supporting Windows Vista, for it must be considered insecure.
