Hi,
I known that Windows 2003 is past end of life, but is there known high level issues that have not been patched by Microsoft for this OS and IIS version?

Thanks.

It is no longer being patched and has not been for months.

There are new exploits every day, especially ransomware. So it is not even remotely possible to say what is missing because security fixes stop before many of the new ransomware attacks.

Just not a useful server anymore

As I said, no one is tracking server 2003 vulnerabilities any more. We do not have any around to even test.
