Also don't forget, that installing every "Monthly Rollup", starting with KB3192403, will also install botnet (aka diagnostics, telemetry and data gathering).
The only workaround is to force disable Windows Autoupdate checking and manually install only the "Monthly Security-only updates".

I didn't heard of KB3214626, maybe you meant KB3212646,
but unfortunately it's whole "Monthly Rollup", not just "Security-only update", which is KB3212642.
KB3212646 has telemetry thing included per including all fixes from: KB3207752, KB3197869, KB3197868 and KB3192403, which was the start of the cumulative telemetry thing. :P

Yes BUT, MS say that it's got nothing "nasty or intrusive" in it.
Sure it hasn't. ;)

Will watch for it, next time I check.

Yep.
"They're" still pushing the "compatibility checker", according to woody dot com.

From his site...ref; > "Office non-security patches appear with the reprise of KB 2952664 and 2976978."

"They" might just be trying to hide it under a false name?
