Your reasons for staying with Win7 may range from mere convenience to mental inertia to an abject fear of the Win10 info borg. Whatever your reasons for remaining with Win7, there are steps you can take right now to ensure Win7 keeps working -- at least until Microsoft pulls the plug on security patches, on Jan. 14, 2020.

Apple Fixes Password-Related Bugs in iOS and Mac OS   

Two separate flaws give away user passwords.

Apple is usually reliable for security and privacy, but every once in a while, things slip by. Two serious, and separate, vulnerabilities in iOS and Mac OS were discovered that can give away passwords. Apple has patched both security holes.

An iOS vulnerability was discovered by Davut Hari, a patent attorney from Turkey. It's just a silly mistake. Saved passwords are not shown in plain text and are hidden by just showing ****. That's one line of defense. Apple is also good at the accessibility feature, so if you select the password, accessibility is enabled, and you click the "Voice" option, the iOS device reads the password. Anyone in earshot can hear the password.

Apple released an update on December 12 and admitted that a "nearby user may be able to overhear spoken passwords." The update disabled speaking of passwords.
