Microsoft plans to end support for the company's operating systems Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 in January 2020. Enterprise customers may purchase extensions to extend support by up to three years and some other exceptions apply that extend official support.

Most businesses and all home customers won't be able to extend support officially. Security company 0Patch announced on September 21, 2019 that it will step in and "security-adopt" Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 to create and distribute security patches for these operating system versions after January 2020.

I've never heard of this problem but surely it's still risky using it as windows no longer supports it. When using an out of date OS there is always higher risks involved. I get that some businesses rely on legacy stuff that may not be available on newer versions and may be hard and costly to upgrade but on a security point it is always recommended

Indeed it's better to avoid no longer supported products even though some other companies might go ahead and keep supporting it , but still you need Microsoft's support because that is their product.
