WUDO is Voodoo
WUDO (Windows Update Delivery Optimization) is a feature in
Windows 10 that is stealing your bandwidth.
Well, maybe not voodoo but it made a really cool title for
In previous versions of Windows all updates came directly
from Microsoft which is a lot of data being handled by a limited
infrastructure. This means updates were
slower and more prone to glitches.
The new WUDO feature in Windows 10 is designed to help users
get software updates much faster by using your Internet bandwidth to distribute
update files to other people’s computers.
The big no-no committed by Microsoft is the fact that they
automatically have your computer set up to be used to distribute these updates
to other computers. It is enabled, by default, without the knowledge of users. In other words, they are hijacking your
bandwidth if you download Windows 10 and leave it as is.
Microsoft said the feature, "helps people get updates and apps more quickly if they have limited or
unreliable internet connection” and that it "doesn’t slow down your internet connection” because it uses a "limited portion” of idle upload
It seems pretty sneaky to me and I recommend shutting that
feature off so that your computer isn’t used that way.
