Microsoft will know what’s on your Windows 8!
This is an observation made by a hacker called Nadim Kobeissi. Apparently, Windows 8 is sending information to Microsoft every time an application is installed on the operating system. This is not a good piece of news for the users. It means Microsoft, like Google is being interested in knowing the information of the users.
Windows SmartScreen is the program that sends the information to Microsoft. It reports information whenever you download and install any application on your computer. It sends out the digital signature of the application that you have installed on your computer with your IP address. This can lead to serious security concerns if Microsoft doesn’t correct this soon.
Privacy concerns are the major reason for people these days on the Internet. And now, looks like the same is going to happen to the Windows 8 computers.
