Starting today, Microsoft is offering most Windows 7 and Windows 8 users a free upgrade to the software giant's latest operating system -- Windows 10. But there's a very important security caveat that users should know about before transitioning to the new OS:

This is a huge security flaw that Microsoft has intentionally added into Windows 10. But you must "Opt-Out" of it if you don't want your wireless password shared with EVERYONE you know.

Just thought you should know.
