Yes. But this would be no different from any other AV though. They all send out stuff to the mother-ship whenever they feel like it.

this is so scary, damn, so scary,
i hate those explorer (i think some exists in linux) that scan all your files, and try to create the damn thumbnails, word, pdf, pictures, videos, wtf, and cached them,

further more, those cloud agents, can upload any files they want into the main cloud, all our files, Laughing by reading chunk by chunk into different memory files, upload them onto net, who know and who could actually spot what actually being uploaded,

crazy shits, but any software inside our pc could does this, easily, damn it,

the os must allow user to set permission for program in api level, not just the read/write and group, exec, looking forward this feature in android, linux and windows

Like database indexers, and yeah I fucking hate their guts, but it's easy to disable them in Linux since they're either cron jobs or systemd timers. In worst case, just remove their files and that's that (or unset the 'execute' bit on the files).

Never used a "cloud agent", if you want to upload to the cloud, do it with the (sandboxed) browser, is that so hard? I'm always amazed at the amount of JUNK people install and use on their PCs.

Nah, you just need a different mindset: deny by default.

Internet access? DENY it for ALL apps except those you handpick (e.g. your browser). Just block the outgoing access: the connections that aren't negotiated are dropped anyway, no need for input rule. How do you do that?

Run the internet apps as another user, and the user you log in with has no internet access at all. Bonus: the user with internet access that runs the browser can also be denied access to most of your personal files.

Say hello to your firewall. As Furs says, put it into deny by default.

thumbs up, now they just need to focus on the browser to crack the whole thing,

is such setting possible in windows? 7,8,8.1, or 10? using the default windows firewall?

I'd rather have a fortified safe with one door they need to crack, than a house with doors on every wall so they have a choice of where to break in from, you know. Wink

No idea, I haven't used Windows connected online for a very long time, and when I did, I never used Windows Firewall, but 3rd party firewalls, which allowed you to make such rules (also per-application, not just per-user, but it was more involved).

Internet Explorer zero-day: browser is once again under attack
https://blog.malwarebytes.com/threat-analysis/2018/05/internet-explorer-zero-day-browser-attack/

Quote:

In late April, two security companies (Qihoo360 and Kaspersky) independently discovered a zero-day for Internet Explorer (CVE-2018-8174), which was used in targeted attacks for espionage purposes. This marks two years since a zero-day has been found (CVE-2016-0189 being the latest one) in the browser that won’t die, despite efforts from Microsoft to move on to the more modern Edge.

Yet another scripting attack. This time a VBScript, not JS. I didn't even know that IE could execute VB code from random websites. Shocked

Why do people still trust random websites to run code? That is just crazy IMO.

the more i interact with windows 10, the more i hate it, they stupidly change the control panel to some idiot non-standardized bastard setting,

for the sake of new changes, they make it hard to open control panel,

and if you have upgraded your windows 10 from the first released till 1803, most likely it is slow, un-usable, full of leftovers, etc, basically, a rubbish bin,

truly, those who forgot to uphold the principle of kiss will create endless troubles for others,

Q: How do you know in an easy and fast way that Windows 10 is a total pile of degenerated shit?

A: Its tooltips use the word "tap" instead of "click".

Windows 7 firewall allows making rules for individual applications, ports, and/or users. I used it in deny mode with a whitelist. And it was interesting to see in the block logs how many applications tried to phone home.

Turns out, Skype 8 doesn’t allow disabling automatical updates anymore. Which makes it funny for a few people whose computers I often pay my attention to, since these updates actually break Skype so that it doesn’t start anymore. Once in a month or so I have to connect via TeamViewer and reinstall Skype.

Maybe we should create a petition for an international law that would let us cut such people’s hands until they stop writing such sh*t?

because the coders forgot about the impact of his/her codes onto people lives,

we keep on making changes, but how much time we spend on reflecting our changes? how our major changes causing more troubles to others? how this new and shining features created endless support calls?

above words, a reminder to myself too,

Did you try to use the web version of Skype? I don't know if it can fit their needs but it's worth a try.

I did. But it works quite bad for video calls. I haven’t needed them often until recently.

Funny thing is that web-version is a no-auto-updates-disable-option version as well.

https://www.extremetech.com/computing/248069-unofficial-patch-unblocks-windows-7-8-1-updates-kaby-lake-ryzen

it seems that no other windows os version are supported in 7th and 8th generation intel cpu, so all the new laptop are crippled out from factory, how is this even possible to happen without any class action suit?

This is MSes fault, not the hardware makers. This is MS stopping Win7 and Win8 from installing updates on later generation CPUs.

If you don't allow updates then this doesn't affect you.

And this is just more proof that MS are trying to monitor and take control of everyone's data.
