If you don't know, like me moment ago,
today I was trying to update my Windows 7 manually with security-only update,
I'm doing it after some time after patch release to mitigate patch issues, as there were too many in past,
and I found that latest security-only update KB4507456 contains also KB2952664 spyware "botnet" patch (aka diagnostics, telemetry and data gathering).

Relatively..old news.
You might want to frequent "askwoody dot com" to keep updated on all the latest
c%#* that MS are releasing to the public.
"PKCano" keeps a list updated for all the safe MS "Security Only" updates.
On the site, search for...
"2000003: Ongoing list of "Group B" monthly updates for Win7 and 8.1"
Scroll down for the latest offerings for your system.
----------------------------------------------------------------
MS still want everyone on the very latest WIN10 by any means available.
They've even stopped releasing updates for the earlier versions.

Thank you very much for remind me about this awesome website page!

I had this website page bookmarked for very long time,
unfortunately I didn't placed it in proper bookmark folder after adding it
and it stayed with other thousands of bookmarks in unsorted folder.
