Microsoft smyger in anrop i C++-kod


Recently Reddit user “sammiesdog” posted claims that Visual Studio’s C++ compiler was automatically adding function calls to Microsoft’s telemetry services.

Microsofts respons är som hämtat ur skvallerpressens “Du kan aldrig tro vad som hände sen”-artiklar:

The ensuing controversy and conversation about the discovery of this function led to a response from Microsoft’s Steve Carroll, Development Manager for the Visual C++ team.  First and foremost in his response is the unequivocal statement that this functionality will be removed in Visual Studio 2015’s Update 3.

Underligt, men ändå korrekt agerat av Microsoft.
