Re: Simple crash dumps...
Are dumps not a dump of memory so that the flaw can be found?
What about when that flaw is directly related to a user's data?
MS's descriptions of what is sent:
At the Basic level we collect only data necessary to keep Office programs up to date, functioning properly and secure. Basic data includes information about the program itself, the proper function of Office, and basic error data. We collect the following data at the Basic level:
- Connectivity and configuration data such as the version of Office in use; and the name, version, and publisher of any add-ins installed and being used in Office
- Whether Office is ready for an update and if there are factors that may impede the ability to receive updates
- Whether updates install successfully
- Data about the reliability of the diagnostics collection system
- Basic error reporting, which is health data about the Office programs running on your device; for example if a program such as Word hangs or crashes
Full data includes everything collected with Basic data, plus additional information that enables Microsoft to fix and improve its’ products for all users. The following list includes examples of the additional information Office collects at the Full level.
- Additional data about Office connectivity and configuration beyond that collected at the Basic level
- Application usage, such as which Office programs are opened on a device, how long they run, which processes they use, and how quickly they respond to input
- Enhanced error reporting, including the memory state of the device when program crash occurs (which may unintentionally contain parts of a file you were using when the problem occurred)
- To help you get the most out of Office, we may tell you about features you may not know about or that are new
Under Full, there is definitely potential for confidential information to be sent.
