  • This month’s Win7 and 8.1 “security only” patches install and activate telemetry systems

    Back in July, we discovered that the Win7 security-only patch was installing and activating telemetry (read: snooping) subsystems.

    The August security-only patches didn’t include telemetry, and many of us breathed a sigh of relief.

    Now it looks like the September security-only patches have telemetry once again — and not just for Win7.
