> Windows 10 PC’s phone home even after privacy hardening
http://www.ghacks.net/2016/02/08/windows-10-phones-home-even-after-privacy-hardening/

> Windows 10 telemetry network traffic analysis

A user on Voat analyzed the network traffic of Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system using a DD-WRT router and a Linux Mint laptop with remote logging and Windows 10 Enterprise installed on Virtualbox recently.

He turned off all privacy-related features during custom installation, and let the computer sit idle for eight hours straight afterwards logging network traffic.

In the eight hours Windows 10 made 5508 connection attempts.

> Here is the roughly 8-hour network traffic analysis of 5508 connection attempts of an unused, base install of Windows 10 Enterprise


>but hurr durr you can install leltsb edition and disable botnet with third party 'apps' and use hosts
Yeah, right, what else? Indians can use the loo?

Not only that, but in Windows 10 hosts file can be bypassed (Edge browser does that if you try to block bing.com).

>He analyzed the network traffic again after 30 hours, and posted his finding on Pastebin (http://pastebin.com/raw/2V2Uz3uW) as a dump this time.
>After 30 hours of use, Windows 10 attempted to connect to 113 non-private IP addresses.

>He then decided to run a privacy tool for Windows 10, DisableWinTracking, and monitor network traffic again for a period of time to see how it affects the connections made during that time.

>DisableWinTracking is not the most complete privacy tool for Windows 10, but it enables you to make several changes related to privacy to the system including disabling telemetry, services, blocking domains and IP addresses, and uninstalling applications.

>After running the tool, he monitored the network traffic for another 30-hour period and noticed a drop in connection attempts (from 5508 to 2758) and a drop in unique IP addresses the operating system tried to connect to (from 95 to 30).

>It is likely that tools that programs that offer more options than DisableWinTracking reduce the numbers further.

>The takeaway from the test -- which requires verification -- is that Windows 10 will connect to remote sites regularly even if the operating system has been configured for privacy and the computer is idle.

>It is unclear why Windows 10 makes that many connections even when idle.

>Windows 10 users who don't want any of those connections to be made can use the researcher's recommended list of IP ranges to block in a firewall / router. Please note that doing so may impact functionality such as update checking and downloading as well.

Just so you know, all Windows since XP do this. However, I've said before about this, it's not nefarious in the same sense that the rest of the tracking bullshit is. You can check for yourself in dnsapi.dll with a hex editor that the addresses are for windows update servers and microsoft's site. It's to prevent poisoning and redirection. I'm not 100% sure if Windows 10 expanded the whitelisted domains though.

But yeah, we've known for a while now that Windows 10 phones home despite being told not to, what's new? What I think the guy who did the test should have done though was to use a clean install of an unfucked version of 7 to compare an OS that is known not to actively spy on you
>inb4 NSA/CIA backdoors, not the same as active constant spying

to how much 10 does. Then the study would be a bit more credible. What I want to know without a shadow of a doubt is WHAT 10 is sending on those connections. Just textual data? Screencaps of your desktop? I've heard the latter before but I've yet to see any kind of concrete evidence of that. I'd believe it though.

Most big windows versions now have big problems, win 8 had that terrible metro interface that had to be fixed with external apps.

Win 10 has these privacy issues that have to be fixed with external apps.

So whats the difference from the past? The "big horrible thing" happened to change from interface thing, to privacy things.

Use tiny wall, use the anti telemetry programs and it should be fine, should it not?

Question, how do you expect that to be answered? Scenario:

2. It's not encrypted.

What are the fucking odds of this?

>>
>>52863248
I just wonder what the ultimate solution could be to fix this problem. I wonder if we are going to be forced to buy a program for that since the problem requires so many man hours and effort to fix, while MS may make new vectors of attack daily.

An external firewall is not that expensive, nor that hard to use.

But we really need somekind of commercial, fool proof way to fix win 10.

Whats so hard about it? All you need to do is to find out the "normal" connections of windows, like the timesync connecting and ugh... actually nothing else?

and block out every other IP/domain that it tries to connect to? Have a bunch of different windows computers running in some lab, automate whatever things they want to connect to and add it to some giant blocklist that you distribute to your program?

Win10 has a torrent like method of obtaining patches over LAN.

Also how do you figure out what's a normal connection? A lot of the traffic is encrypted, and a lot of the processes are "hidden" in svchosts.

And no matter how hard you block stuff, if MS pulls something like GFWL then what do you do?

Easiest way to sandbox Windows so it can't spy on everything you do, is to install it inside a virtual machine. You open it when you need a program for Windows and you close it when it's no longer needed. Do all your other stuff in Linux, especially browsing which usually has all your passwords and credit card numbers and such easily compromised. You don't want to write those inside Windows.
>>
>>52865669
It's reached the point where sandboxing doesn't even help.

They don't just gather what you use, how you use it matters too.

So the OS has to be somehow abstracted from what you want to work on(if you deem it important enough to conceal).

Short of completely cutting off it's connection to the internet, it seems very painful to do in the long run.

They act like if the shit was open source they would be able to audit the code and put their mind at ease. But in reality, they would let someone else audit it for them and if they heard what they want to hear, they would agree with it.

People here think that if windows went open source they would be able to find the backdoors and stupid shit they claim exists, when in reality if people couldn't even find the glaring bugs in the linux kernel for fucking DECADES, how the fuck do you think you will find anything in the windows kernel?

No one here has the ability to truly audit something so complicated anyways, they just wait for someone to tell them what to think.

Because windows updates, windows store, onedrive and he still had telemetry enabled. You need to remove the service to be sure and change group policies. After uninstalling windows store, disabling onedrive, removing telemetry services and updating group policies the only connections I get to MS are to their update servers after the initial shit after install are taken care of.

Reposting from the last time this bullshit, fabricated Voat post got posted here by gulible idiots who believe anything they read:

I read TFA, the guy is an idiot and screwed up the test.

He configured the router to drop all connections. So Windows tries to access Windows Update, and it fails. So it tries the next server on the list, which fails. Strange, the interface has an IP address, try the next one...

Windows also has this thing called the Out Of Box Experience. It's been there since at least 98, probably before. The first time you log in, it runs a few things so you can choose your preferences and set important stuff up. If you ignore it, it will carry on looking for updates from the Windows Store, updates for live tiles in the start menu etc.

Every OS enables a load of crap by default. This is not surprising at all.

Unlike the guy in TFA, I bothered to do this properly. If you disable everything and don't use Windows Store apps then the only traffic is to Windows Update.

This is what happens when your source is a Reddit knock-off full of people who found Reddit too civil.

Well then they should let us see what exactly is it that they are collecting and doing. They should also let them actually get patch notes instead of forcing updates we don't even know nothing about.

Why you say? Well, if they've got nothing to hide, then there is nothing to fear, of course. After all, isn't that how it works for us?

Have you actually spent anytime looking at the windows system directory and some of the filenames in there? Use windows for a day or two and look at the recently modified and created file list and log files? Event viewer and scheduler? Default services enabled and running?
It's absolutely astounding, but now that it regularly beacons the mothership a bit frightening. I hear tell they are basically telling you in the waiver you click off on during install now, they will scan your files and they own everything you do on their OS. The free upgrade? Obviously the user is the product now. But hey, that goes for near everything "tech"today including this place.

We are certainly not in Kansas anymore, apparently not even in Redmond, maybe a Mormon bunker in Utah or Pajeets chop shop in the big Poo?

Not that anon, but I suppose I'll find out in a few days.

Slim to none.

They actually use your data to blast you with ads. And they earm a shit load of money from doing so. Keep in mind that this already is a paid product, not a free one where you could easily overlook this aspect.

Friendly reminder that you do not have superuser/root access in windows.

No he means that the OS was doing ONE information transaction but was blocked so it tried the next one and when that was blocked it tried the next one etc.

Why do it at host level? You're supposed to be doing all egress filtering at your router (if a home user). Fucking idiot deserved to be spied on by Microsoft.

remember how dx11 was supposed to be a huge deal?
reality is you can make a modern, amazing looking game on dx9, or you can not use directx

new versions of directx have no point other than to try to force people to use new versions of windows.
