    How is the infection count estimated? The real number has to be higher, right?

    Ah, so Micro$loth is the author of the ransomware then. Makes sense. I kind of suspected they might be doing this as a scam to coerce Windows 10 adoption. That they would have us believe that anyone might be safer using their latest cancer OS puts them in a suspicious place. They would do better to keep silent on the subject to avoid raising suspicions.

    Pound a nail in Windows 10 coffin, too many people are wise to them, and their Gestapo tactics.

    This is the FUD machine working in reverse. They can only say it might have prevented some of the attacks. It can't discount for machines that were running on pirated software. Nor anticipate those not updates by using delayed update in the pro version or above etc.. Unfortunately we are dealing with sheep here.

    Linux is just too powerful for Windows 10 S, so Microsoft blocked it:rolleyes:

    "Windows 10 S is for people who don't want to futz with computers, a senior Microsoft exec says."

    "Microsoft said it created Windows 10 S as a way for students and even mainstream users to add a bit more security to their Windows 10 experience."

    Seeing the context? Both in blue!!:no:We bathe in trash!! Both in terms of hardware and software. And this does not end... Just increase in scope.


    "If Windows 10 S will only allow apps that can be downloaded from the Microsoft Store, it can run the new downloadable Linux apps, right? Wrong! "

    ---------------------------------------------------

    Edit. The Norwegian Data Inspectorate will examine Microsoft:D

    "As NRK (Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation) revealed Sunday, anyone could access sensitive information, such as birth numbers from the Brønnøysund Registers.

    "Now it turns out that the case includes hundreds of companies and that thousands of sensitive documents are open on the internet."

    From the same article:
    "Fortunately, there is a solution: Windows 10 S contains a built-in upgrade path to Windows 10 Pro, and here's how to do it. If you've preordered thenew Surface Laptop, the device will ship with Windows 10 S, but you'll be able to upgrade for free for a limited time."

    I am concerned MS will block installing Linux to replace Windows on those Windows S(tore) Edition laptops, we will need to wait for units to get into the field and get student reports back from actual users.

    RESPONDING: National Security Authority believes security hole stems from an update to Microsoft's search engines.

    ""From time to time you open Internet pages contain sensitive information that is not sufficiently secured, and thus this content inadvertently be indexed by different search engines. On our website we have published a guide that explains how this can be avoided and how content already indexed can be removed, "says Vibeke Hansen, Director of Communications at Microsoft Norway."

    Seems like criminally negligent behavior by Microsoft, that host software / search engine should always default to secure, and require a concerted effort on the part of the builder to make them openly available, instead of the other way around.

    This is what happens when we as a community allow and support such behavior from vendors, because "we have no choice" - stop running and supporting such software.

    Stop using Windows 10!!
    How Can I Get a Page on My Site Out of the Bing Index?
    https://www.bing.com/webmaster/help/how-can-i-remove-a-url-or-page-from-the-bing-index-37c07477

    "This article describes the different options webmasters and site owners have to remove a URL from their own site from the Bing index.

    If you are not the webmaster or site owner of the page that should be removed from the search results, you should contact the webmaster of the site to take down the content. If that has already happened and the content is no longer on the site, you can use the Content Removal Tool to request a page removal from the Bing Search results."

    Expanding on that same concept... Sounds like the operating system equivalent of the BGA debacle. An endless supply of filth from the so-called "leaders" in technology, LOL.
    Stop buying BGA garbage.
    Excellent advice on both matters. We should all stop tolerating all forms of incompetence and inferior products.

    There will still be those that continue drinking the Kool-Aid no matter how much evidence against it is presented.

    2) Type gpedit.msc and click OK.

    3) Go to Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Data Collection and Preview Builds.

    [​IMG]
