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. Among them are:

  • Microsoft OneDrive (cloud storage)
  • Microsoft Outlook (email account)
  • Skype account (if signed up with a Microsoft account)
  • Xbox Live network
  • Microsoft Office
  • MSN account (Instant Messaging)
  • Windows Mobile account (access to mobile phone)
  • Microsoft Bing account (access to search history)
