Updates Make Windows 7 and 8 Spy On You Like Windows 10 40


Windows 10 has been launched and already installed on more than 50 million computers worldwide. It is now a known fact that Windows 10 user data is being sent back to Microsoft servers back in Redmond, Washington. Well, now new updates that are being deployed to all Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 machines will turn their computers into a big piece of spyware, just like their predecessor, Windows 10.

The updates in question are KB3075249 and KB3080149. if installed, these updates are known to report your data back to Microsoft servers, without user interaction. KB3075249 Microsoft Update adds telemetry points to ‘consent.exe’ in Windows 7, 8 and 8.1, allowing for remote monitoring of everything that happens within the operating system. KB3080149 ensures that all “down-level devices” receive the same updates and treatment as Windows 10 boxes get.

Windows Script to Remove All Windows 10 Telemetry Updates


UPDATE: Since all of our pastes and github links continue to be getting marked as spam, I have linked a direct zip package for download. You can also visit a user built site with more mirrors. https://blockwindows.wordpress.com/

Microsoft users were furious when they learned that Windows 10 is basically spyware and lots of users were asking for a fix. Ask and ye shall receive.

Below is the list of “updates” delivered by Windows Update as “telemetry and customer experience improvements”. If you don’t want to send your “telemetry” to Microsoft, remove the updates with the script provided and do not install them again. Hakspek would only advise using this code if you are technical and know what you are doing. There is a risk that the lack of updates could end up damaging your computer.

We have asked Microsoft for comment, but it has not yet responded.

Microsoft intensifies data collection on Windows 7 and 8 systems

Windows 7 and 8 users have been plagued by "upgrade preparation" updates but left alone otherwise up until recently when it comes to this new level of data collecting.

This changed recently with the release of several updates for both operating systems that step up the game.

KB3068708 KB3022345 KB3075249 KB3080149

If these updates are installed on the system, data is sent to Microsoft regularly about various activities on it. Microsoft lists two host names in KB3068708 that data is received from and sent to:
vortex-win.data.microsoft.com settings-win.data.microsoft.com

These, and maybe others, appear to be hardcoded which means that the Hosts file is bypassed automatically.

Maybe we better switch back to the discontinued XP so that we can avoid these tit for tat spyware updates.  If I stay with XP, it'll be subject to spyware and not continue to be patched or I could stay with Windows 7/8 and have M$ spyware.  Let me think about this a second.

I noticed this a while back. Now others have. Test were done to confirm.

Windows 10 Upgrade Installing Automatically On Some Windows 7, 8 Systems

We've received a number of reports that people's systems are not merely downloading the installer but actually starting it up. 

Our own testing shows that, yes, the optional update is getting chosen by default, and that's not supposed to happen to optional updates cont http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2015/10/windows-10-upgrade-installing-automatically-on-some-windows-7-8-systems/

I don't trust any of their "updates".
