Microsoft windows updating
The first version of the web app, version 3, does not send any personally-identifiable information to Microsoft.
Instead, the app downloads a full list of every available update and chooses which one to download and install.
The entire risk arising out of the use or performance of the sample scripts and documentation remains with you.
In no event shall Microsoft, its authors, or anyone else involved in the creation, production, or delivery of the scripts be liable for any damages whatsoever (including, without limitation, damages for loss of business profits, business interruption, loss of business information, or other pecuniary loss) arising out of the use of or inability to use the sample scripts or documentation, even if Microsoft has been advised of the possibility of such damages.
The Windows Update web app requires either Internet Explorer or a third-party web browser that supports the Active X technology.
If that one server got compromised one day, or an attacker cracks the [Microsoft] DNS server again, there could be millions of users installing trojans every hour. Unlike its predecessor, Automatic Updates can download and install updates.
