  1. Isn't that what a Firewall is supposed to do? Control traffic/access in and out of your devices. That is the point afterall. Threadjackers aside, Will ESS block Microsoft's backdoor?
  2. I care because I am a Windows user. Just because the other guys have them as well still doesn't make it right. I disagree with it all around from every tech company. "Trust us because we are Microsoft"? Not reassuring. What future are they covering themselves for that makes this OK? If they had no intention on using it they would not have put it inside of their Privacy Policy. Who puts, we reserve the right to steal all of your financial data and empty your bank accounts if we find that there is any money in there. No worries though, we will never do such a thing because we are Microsoft. 'wink'. Unless they were covering themselves for WHEN not IF they actually do it? As far as I am concerned it is the same thing. They have the potential to steal anything and get away with it. Any papers, patents, copyrights, or schematics you might be in the process of working on could be stolen and finished and registered before you get around to it. That's just the start. The access is two-way so placing illegal files on a 'Needs Work' journalists' computer in order to discredit them and get them fired is not impossible. I am sure that the NSA would pay them to do this to many people. Flat out. The only way to eliminate the possibility for this to go wong is to get rid it. My questions regarding ESS still have not been answered.
  3. Opencandy is the adware inside utorrent. It's definitely a PUA.
  4. Windows 10 comes with an insane service agreement that states; Will Eset's firewall be able to prevent remote access by Microsoft and its 'technology partners'? Is Eset aware of any code or function made by Microsoft which can and will prevent 3rd party security vendors from thouroughly securing their computers?
