Windows 7 security , the TIP, and Passwords ?

Windows 7 security , the TIP, and Passwords ? reader Medic / Willem Evenhuis just posted a YouTube video (see below) demonstrating a possible security bug with Windows 7 and their password security setting in the TIP, which is supposed to keep the password from being displayed while it is being entered via the onscreen keyboard. It is clear from his video that the password he is entering is being shown on the keyboard while he uses the onscreen keyboard to type it out, and he says that the TIP security is at the highest setting. I’ve tested this on my end using several websites and the log on screen, and it functions as designed for me. Anyone else having this problem? I’m definitely not seeing it on my end, but it doesn’t mean a potentially serious security bug isn’t there.

this example set up with the highest tip security setting !
