A keeper password manager preinstalled with fresh Windows 10 OS which contains a serious security flaw that discovered by Google most respective security researcher Tavis Ormandy who is working a part of Google Zero Project.
This Critical security flaw from password manager leads to escalating the privileges of windows and leaked the saved password from the browser.

Tavis Demonstrate this flaw where this clearly explained that how to steal the password for any website from a Keeper user.
Also he said, I recently created a fresh Windows 10 VM with a pristine image from MSDN, and found that a password manager called “Keeper” is now installed by default. I’m not the only person who has noticed but already a windows user have been reported in Reddit.
It was reported to the keeper and they said, To resolve this issue, we removed the “Add to Existing” flow and have taken additional steps to prevent this potential vulnerability in the future. Even though no customers were adversely affected by this potential vulnerability, we take all reported security issues, vulnerabilities, and bug report seriously.
According to Travis, This bug is subject to a 90-day disclosure deadline. After 90 days elapse or a patch has been made broadly available, the bug report will become visible to the public.
