"in an eight hour period Windows 10 tried to send data back to 51 different Microsoft IP addresses over 5500 times"
I have several illegal memes stored on my Solid Disk Drive, and I'm worried that they be offsited to Microsoft cloudnet datastores due to the way Microsoft drivers for Solid Disk Drives can read data leaving no traces.
??? Implying I want my information to be used by major companies whom only care about profit margins and would be willing to sell information to advertisers and the government who are on the brink of deciding that strong encryption is a crime. Fucking off yourself microshill retard.
Upload this to an archive or something you dumb shit.
>Microsoft claims they collect heaps of data from millions of users to improve Windows
>Windows 10 still remains shit after months
Congrats for spewing on an obvious botnet OS like Win10 by posting on an imageboard that not only hands over all the IP addresses to whoever government entities want it (not only by patriot act) but also bans permabans you instantly when accessing it over a tor exit node.
You fucking dumbwits. All of you.
4chan is spying on everyone who posts here.
>Be a wincuck
>>Is there any legit proof that windows 10 is a botnet?
>Sees EULA and some relevant articles
>Initiate damage control
>>Wh-What do you have to hide?
>you walking pile of humanoid garbage

Why don't you go and eat your own shit,Rajesh? Microsoft is a master race company that will buy Linux and will use it to make money.
>there are people on /g/ right now who use and defend windows 10
>there are people on /g/ right now who use and defend ganoo memeshit
1v1 me irl fget i'll wrek ur mom xDDD 360 quickcope jejeejeje
Why does this trigger winbabbies so much?
This is fucking FUD.
The guy blocked all MS IPs, so that every time w10 tries a server, it gets rejected and then moves on to the next one.
Some other guy did a proper monitoring test with no blocked IPs and privacy setting set to the max and w10 only sent a few bytes per hour.
Holy shit you weren't kidding. These faggots I swear.
I love how some Linux user got so buttblasted by this image they had to make that.
Just like always GNU/Linux trails behind having to make shitty copies of what Windows has. lmao.
I recently moved out to the country and the best internet I can get here is Dish with a 10gig data cap. I switched to Debian because of the fact I could not turn off updates. The only way I could is if I use wifi and make it metered. I use a wired connection because I play LAN games with my son. Do I like the direction that Win10 has gone? No. Do I like the direction that internet has gone? No. Forcing people to have data caps and forcing people to download updates is wrong.
Everything I need works.
Just waiting on dx11 support in wine but that can honestly take it's time while I get my Xen passthrough working.
SInce I use Ultimate it includes both w10 related and telemetry updates.

No thanks, sunny boy, I will just switch on my anti -antiadblocker
No, or atleast none that I'm aware of. I manually check all the updates and keep my list updated.
KB******* -- place ******* after slash in the above url.
Also this might help
Not the program, but the list. My list contains only the ones that I received (MS usually pulls and replaces updates, mine is as of yesterday).
I do, I have my personal thoughts written on my computer, I have a browsing history that involves sites where I made purchases, I have calendars with the dates of my families birthdays on them etc etc etc. If I wanted this to be public information I would put them on facebook or take out an advert in the Washington Post. Do I have something to hide? YES I want to hide everything that others do not need to see
>tfw 2013 windows 7 copy with no updates installed
feels good to not be a part of the botnet
Read the text on the diary's page. It's an old 4chan meme and there to get people to believe that you're pissed off and that they successfully trolled someone, which is something that anon cunts like
think they can with obvious bait such as "got something to hide" reply.
If anon cunt would have fallen for it, then he would have been the one idiot on this board of idiots. Blablabla explaining stuff like this ain't working fuck yourself OP.
Do you really think you are not apart of the botnet because you clicked a checkbox in some proprietary settings GUI that says "No updates we promise :)"? Do you know anything about computers?
protip: you're being watched just as much as fresh installed windows 10 users
you are learning young padawan

That is government; that is its justice; that is its morality."
I never read any articles from sites which force ads on the user. Fuck that, it can't be quality journalism if they use shitty jew tricks like that.
Besides, most of the stuff is just regurgitated from tech videos on youtube. They do the hard work, then some liberal cock suck from forbes or some equally terrible site just repeats the results and passes it off as original research. It's fucking pathetic. People just buy it up because they've heard the name forbes (etc) before as if the name only makes it more credible.
They can keep their stupid ads, I'll keep my adblocker and I'll keep learning more from people who do it out of passion instead of money.
I hope the NSA spies on me. My desktop runs Linux but I use a Chromebook when I'm out and about so it'll be easy.
I hope some poor soul turns on my webcam, starts downloading my history and sees endless amounts of cartoon porn and stepmom JOI URLs.
I hope he sees me beat off, I hope he sees me cum on the tile floor and wipe it off with an old tshirt I've outgrown.
I hope he sees me do this every day, five or six times a day, sometimes in between writing essays, sometimes while I'm talking to women on the phone, or telemarketers. When I'm playing video games. When I'm browsing /g/.
Maybe one day, I will splatter on the webcam and violate him forever, this normal-looking man violently tweaking his shaft until I blow my load right in his face. He will turn off the monitor, resign from his post, and cry.
Only my cum can kill the botnet.
I cannot believe everyone does not just install this masterpiece of an operating system RIGHT NOW. Windows 10 is simply beautiful. Functional. Inspirational.
What do you have to lose (or, should I say, hide)?
>I cannot believe everyone does not just install this masterpiece of an operating system RIGHT NOW.
Because some people rightfully belong here in /g/
Chuckled at the damage control
Using Windows 10 is like having a gf with HIV.
>It's like getting a gf with AIDS and saying you can easily use condom
Describes winshills perfectly
I can't believe how dumb lincucks actually are.
This forbes article is completely flawed crap proven wrong and you still eating it up like fresh shit on the bottom of your feet.
Are you all really retarded or is this just desperation like how you suck google botnet cock for free because it's the only consumer marketshare you get?
May be 9gag is your place
Haha useless Microsoft can't count to 9. Jesus wept.
Love and kisses, Tux & Linux, BSD & Apple. Google too. xxxx
>Hear all the stuff about W10
>Get worried that I might have some shit on my 7
>Don't know shit about what update to delete and fear everyone is telling me to delete the wrong shit in orer to break my toaster
I don't know what to believe anymore
>First of all, 602 connection attempts were to 192.168.1.255, using UDP port 137. That's the broadcast address where Windows computers on a local network announce their presence and look for other network computers using the NetBIOS Name Service. It's perfectly normal traffic.
>Another 630 of those connection attempts were Domain Name System lookups to the router itself, 192.168.1.1, using UDP port 53. That address is the router itself.
>Why is Windows performing those DNS lookups? One big reason is that's how Windows checks whether you have access to the Internet. If there's a problem with your Internet connection, you get a yellow overlay on the network icon down at the right side of the taskbar.
>To do that test, Windows first performs a DNS lookup of www.msftncsi.com. It then makes an HTTP request to retrieve the page ncsi.txt from that site. This file is a plain-text file and contains only the text "Microsoft NCSI." (NCSI stands for Network Connection Status Icon.) Finally, it performs a DNS query for dns.msftncsi.com.
>The whole procedure is extensively documented .
>DNS queries aren't "spying." Neither are NetBIOS name broadcasts on your local network. So far, that's 22.3 percent of the so-called traffic that's easily accounted for as "not spying," unless you think there's something sinister about a two-word text file that has been downloaded trillions of times from that poor Microsoft server.
>Next up is a staggering 1,619 connection attempts using UDP port 3544 to the address 188.8.131.52, which Mr. Crust was unable to identify, along with another five attempts using the same port to other servers.
>That address does indeed belong to Microsoft. It's a Teredo server, teredo.ipv6.microsoft.com. Teredo is an Internet standard that is used to supply an IPv6 address to a PC that speaks only IPv4, making it easier to perform secure and reliable communication between two endpoints without having to worry about network translation.
It's also well documented and doesn't involve any exchange of information other than IP addresses.
In short, Windows keeps trying to make a simple connection using its IPv6 capabilities, but the router keeps dropping those connection attempts. So it keeps trying again and again.
That's another 1,624 entries we can add to the "not spying" list. So far, by my tally, more than 52 percent of the connection attempts are completely harmless and involve no data collection at all.
Another three connection attempts are using port 123. That's the Network Time Protocol, which devices use to retrieve the current time from authoritative servers on the Internet. Setting the clock on your computer is not "spying."
Mr. Crust's list has another 549 connection attempts on port 80, which is plain old HTTP. Windows doesn't have a web server installed by default, so those are all incoming connections, with Windows trying to retrieve data from Microsoft's servers. They're not sending it the other direction.
Many of the addresses on the list belong to content delivery networks (CDNs) like Akamai Technologies and CloudFlare. Some of those downloads are possibly trying to refresh live tiles in the provisioned MSN apps (News, Sports, Weather, Money, and so on). There are perhaps some updates to the Windows Store in there too.
We might know more if Mr. Crust had allowed his machine to complete some of those connections so he could perform some actual traffic analysis. But he didn't, so we can't.
We can, however, safely conclude that none of those connections would involve any "spying."
Which leaves us with 2,100 connection attempts in eight hours over port 443. Those are secure (HTTPS) connections designed to exchange data so that it can't be intercepted in transit.
We have no idea how many secure connections that machine would have made in eight hours had Mr. Crust actually allowed them to complete.
And of course, those connections are not all about telemetry.
The most important one is the Software Licensing Service, which checks the state of Windows activation periodically. By dropping those connections, Mr. Crust is not allowing those activation and validation checks to complete. Windows gets very cranky when that happens, which could explain why there were more than 1,700 connection attempts to a handful of addresses in a single range of IP addresses managed by Microsoft.
Other content that gets delivered securely over port 443 includes Windows updates, Windows Defender updates, and updates from the Windows Store for apps that are provisioned on every Windows 10 machine. Windows 10 attempts to contact OneDrive, also securely, to see if there are any saved settings for the current user. There are lists of known malicious websites that get delivered to the SmartScreen service in a hashed and encrypted format.
