Re: And Server 2012 as well

I can't help wonder if a few security people should start asking MS really probing questions about what is actually sent back to the Redmond mothership.

They say no identifying data, but they then mention they take snapshots of RAM.

Just how do they propose to identify what is "identifying" and what isn't? What happens if the RAM snapshot was of the web browser's RAM just as you were filling out an order form on an online shop?

They going to find your address in there and scrub it out? I think not.
