Denying Win 10 and untrusted software full internet access


Recommended Posts

Preventing Windows 10 and untrusted software from having full access to the internet

 

Basically it is OpenBSD running in a Virtual Machine to block all outgoing traffic, but you can allow a browser as Firefox in order to have access to internet, or any other program you want.

 

I found this info interesting and wanted to share it here:

Epic quote:

 

... I noticed Windows 10 doing crazy things like installing or updating apps and games by default after initial setup. The one I noticed in particular was Candy Crush Soda Saga which for those who don't know of it is some cheesy little puzzle game originally for consumer devices. I honestly did not want software like this near to a development machine. It has also been reported that Windows 10 now also updates core system software without notifying the user. Surely this destroys any vaguely deterministic behaviour, in my opinion making Windows 10 by default almost useless for development testbeds ...
