Could someone tell me if II 7 is no longer supported?

To make a long story short, we have been flagged that this was Vulnerable because of the version.  My guess is that Microsoft has patched it.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

IIS 7 was supplied with Windows Vista and is not considered current.  IIS versions are tied to the versions of Windows that they were supplied with.  https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/224609
