"An issue in all Windows systems might leak the user’s Windows login and password information. This is especially critical if the user is using a Microsoft account because this is linked to a number of other services the user may be using. [more]
Run the test here: http://msleak.perfect-privacy.com

I ran it and it said NOT VULNERABLE (Didnt think I would be but I checked anyway)

^^^^^^ DOING THIS TEST MIGHT SEND YOUR WINDOWS AND MICROSOFT LIVE USERNAME AND PASSWORD HASH OVER THE INTERNET IN PLAIN TEXT. If that is the case, you should change it immediately afterwards.

Awesome, Dude!

Of course it found nothing. It's probably not compatible with Win98!
He's probably the safest one of all of us!

Microsoft won't fix Windows flaw that lets hackers steal your username and password | ZDNet

"We were able to verify on three computers in our lab using separate disposable Microsoft account logins. It's not immediately clear where any submitted data goes, so we strongly recommend that you do not submit your own credentials to the site.

There's a simple mitigation, according to the group. Don't use Internet Explorer, Edge, or Microsoft Outlook, and don't log in to Windows with a Microsoft account.

Chrome and Firefox users aren't affected."
