I don't run Windows 7. but lots of folks do. This may be concerning to them.

Apparently not a problem for Windows 10.

Given Microsoft history, I expect that Win 10 has a number of vulnerabilities that are currently known only to hackers, NSA, and foreign agencies.

No need to run screaming with your hair on fire just yet.

I run Win7 but 64 bit so not an issue.

But what if I like running around screaming.

I don't use google, nor run any kind of windows. I remain unconcerned. :)

This is why I won't use anything newer than Windows 3.1. No one bothers with it so the risk is going down.
