    New Windows 7/8/8.1 updates spies on you like Windows 10.

    Microsoft is pushing KB3075249 and KB3080149 updates for Windows 7/8/8.1 users which can spy on you.

    Windows 10 has been launcher and already installed by more than 50 million users world wide. It is now a known fact that Windows 10 user data is being reported back to Microsoft servers back in Redmond. The jury is still out whether this a good or bad practice but many of Windows 10 Apps like Cortana depend on getting your preferences correct to serve you better.

    This being the case, many Windows users who are not happy with Windows 10 spying ways and have preferred to stay on Windows 7/8 and Windows 8.1 as the case might be. For those Windows 7/8/8.1 users there are a few updated which Microsoft has been pushing through last few days.

    Namely, KB3075249 and KB3080149, if installed are known to report your data back to Microsoft servers.

    KB3075249 update adds telemetry points to consent.exe in Windows 8.1 and Windows 7.
    The Microsoft support gives following description for them.

    KB3075249 "Update that adds telemetry points to consent.exe in Windows 8.1 and Windows 7"
    Link to their support site which I wont post (idk if I should)

    KB3080149 "This update aligns down-level devices on the same UTC binary that's released in Windows 10. This update would enable all the down-level devices to receive software updates, design updates, and additional power and prefomance tuning"
    Link to the support site.

    In simple words, both these updated, if downloaded and installed will snoop on you and report back certain data to the Microsoft servers.

    There's a lot more.. No outside links posted.

    If you say Windows 7/8/8.1 is safe, think again..

    The vast majority of users won't be affected by this except in positive ways really. Like you said, it's used to make the Windows 10 experience better and it's not like Microsoft is really looking at individual people. I'm not too keen on the idea either but everybody does it now, so what are you gonna do.

    I already do illegal things like torrent stuff, though some of these torrented things were installed before Windows 10 release, but at the moment I torrent a TV series like The Walking Dead and Supernatural, now I wonder where are my cops at XD

    I use Windows therefore I agree with their terms of service whatever they have in their terms of service, I agreed with them.. Yes some people find it bad that they "Spy" on you, but people need to realize that NSA and shit like that is ALREADY spying on them.

    But the same thing happens to us Mac users as well. Honestly, this shouldn't even be a shock to anyone.

    That's what I was saying that we're already spied on.. A long before even Microsoft thought of it.
