Re: "not the shooter"
On your points
1) installs without notification. Win 10 did this.
2) records keys pressed without notification. Win 10 does this.
3) surveillance using camera & microphone without notification. Cortana listens to you.
4) view and download files without notification. Win 10 scans files to report back to M$.
5) access names and passwords for websites without...you get the picture Yep Win 10.
6) mine virtual currencies. Unknown but I wouldn't hold my breath.
7) launch DDoS attacks against other computers. Unknown if Win 10 does this.
8) prevent anti-malware software from detecting or removing it. If win 10 allowed anti-virus to fix it it would not exist.
9) Uses stealth to stop users blocking communication to the mother ship. Win 10.
Sorry but I fail to see the difference.
