    Looks like a JSON of my complete list. This should cover all of the Win10 spying/telemetry without breaking anything.

    I haven't found anything traversing to WAN that wasn't caught by this - yet. But Microsoft is sneaky.

    Yes - I had hoped to make that clear - it included the hosts in post #4 of this thread.

    I just provided it the right format to make it easy to import it.


    Thanks for your original work!

    I think I'll... pass...

    Deleting bits of Windows you don't like has historically not ended well. I'll disable a service or two, but what that EXE does is drive a nail with a wrecking ball.

    Of course, use at your own risk, in a test environment.
    I test it in virustotal.com and hybrid-analysis.com.

    Testing it for viruses is one thing, what I'm saying is that this tool implements dangerous functionality. Use of that tool to remove Windows components is just like diving into SSH on Untangle, a very fast way to get into an unsupported place.

    Thanks for collaborating on it.

    According to my expanded testing, this is still the most complete block list for Win10 out there. I haven't found anything it didn't catch yet but will keep checking and will also keep watching after MS Updates. I am unaware of this block list 'breaking' anything in Win10 so it seems exceedingly safe to use.

    I'd be careful with some of the third party Win10 privacy tools though, some could in theory, really mess up your Win10 installation. Always better to just block it on Untangle I think.

    This is great guys. I downloaded the list for the webfilter
    I also have something to add.
    I discovered that msnbot that is part of explorer.exe is making contact with microsoft.
    I first tried blocking the ip that showed up in netstat.
    But after like 7-8 ip's. I gave up and added the whole ip-range.
    This is it. 191.232.139.0/24

    I forgot to tell you that I blocked this ip-range in filter rules. Not in the webfilter.

    Just to update. Microsoft is wise to people blocking.

    They've started pushing telemetry through 2 secondary domains they likely assume nobody will block.

    arc.msn.com
    rpt.msn.com

    I'd recommend adding those to the blocklist for Untangle.
