Default Microsoft re-releases snooping patches KB 2952664, KB 2976978

I think there were some questions earlier on these in the Win 7
group; the second one is for Win 8 so I'm crossposting to the Win 8
group.

Here's Woody Leonhard's take on these patches:

http://www.infoworld.com/article/316...ows/microsoft-
re-releases-snooping-patches-kb-2952664-kb-2976978.html

Partial text:

We don't know what KB 2952664 (for Windows 7) and KB 2976978 (for
Windows 8.1) actually do. But both patches have been shown in the
past to trigger a new Windows task called DoScheduledTelemetryRun.


The patches appeared in the Automatic Update chute earlier today
[2017-02-09] as Optional, so they won't be installed unless you
specifically check and install them. But in the past, the Optional
versions have been converted rapidly to Recommended, and thus
installed on most machines. The last release of KB 2952664 went
from Optional to Recommend in a week.


. . .


I have no idea what's up. Why is Microsoft releasing this CEIP
[telemetry] diagnostic program on a Thursday? Why isn't it being
held for next Tuesday's Monthly Rollup? Why does it fall outside
the announced schedule of Security Only and Monthly Rollup patches?


You're not paranoid if they actually are out to get you.

Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't after you.

I'm not paranoid - its just a plot by my enemies to make me appear
paranoid.
