16.32 - Telemetry RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've heard people mention the 16.32 update now includes telemetry in Process Explore with it "constantly trying to communicate with several hosts".

    I can't see this. I get the VirusTotal connection, when I look at TCP/IP of Process Explorer within itself. And I can see a couple of connections to Microsoft. Could those be the telemetry connections? They don't seem to be "constant".

  • We have most definitely not added any telemetry to Process Explorer. The main change in the latest version was to resolve an issue with using the wrong icons. In the last year or so all changes to Process Explorer have been bugfixes only.

    Could you tell me what telemetry you think you are seeing?

  • Trying to get evidence. Another engineer mentioned it to me but I'm seeing nothing.

  • I'm not sure what they are on about. The only connections out I see Process Explorer make are to

    status.thawte.com

    Which I assume is the verify image signatures and also the virus total connection.

    Also to ghs-vip-any-c46.ghs.ssl.googlehosted.com
