WindowsSpyBlocker is an application written in Go and delivered as a single executable to block spying and tracking on Windows systems. The initial approach of this application is to capture and analyze network traffic based on a set of tools.

WINDOWSSPYBLOCKER TELEMETRY & DATA COLLECTION

To capture and analyze network traffic for the telemetry option, QEMU virtual machines are used on the server virtualization management platform Proxmox VE based on :

  • Windows 10 Pro 64bits with automatic updates enabled.
  • Windows 8.1 Pro 64bits with automatic updates enabled.
  • Windows 7 SP1 Pro 64bits with automatic updates enabled.

Traffic dumps are clean every day and compared with the current rules to add / remove some hosts or firewall rules.

Tools used to capture traffic :

  • qemu -net dump: capture
  • Wireshark : capture + logs
  • Sysmon : capture + logs
  • Proxifier : logs

The data folder contains the blocking rules based on domains or IPs detected during the capture process :

  • extra.txt : Block third-party applications
  • spy.txt : Block Windows Spy / Telemetry
  • update.txt : Block Windows Update

Firewall and Hosts data are the main types. The others are generated from these as :

  • DNSCrypt : a protocol for securing communications between a client and a DNS resolver.
  • OpenWrt : an open source project used on embedded devices to route network traffic.
  • P2P : a plaintext IP data format from PeerGuardian.
  • Proxifier : an advanced proxy client on Windows with a flexible rule system.
  • Simplewall : a simple tool to configure Windows Filtering Platform (WFP).

  12. The great thing relating to this DVD is that you can do the dance exercises anytime, with no partner.
    There these folks were, anticipating their forthcoming experience and joyously reliving
    the final one — Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy,
    inside guises of actors William Moseley (now a dashing 20-year-old),
    Anna Popplewell (a newly minted Oxford freshman), Skandar Keynes (with vocal octaves further at 15), and Georgie Henley (approaching teenhood,
    a fantastic six inches taller than we last saw her). These art reproductions of paintings printed on canvas sheets or paper then framed and hung
    on walls.
