A forced Windows 10 upgrade nearly led to disaster as the update secretly downloaded on PC’s used to coordinate anti-poaching rangers.
Reddit user Zambuka42, an IT specialist helping coordinate anti-poaching angrily posted about how the download used over 17 GB of precious (and expensive) satellite bandwidth.
“Aside from the fact that we pay per MB, and already share a slow connection, if a forced upgrade happened and crashed our pc’s while in the middle of coordinating rangers under fire from armed militarized poachers..
blood could literally be on MS’s hands. I just came here recently to act as their pilot.. but have IT skills as well. The guy who set these pc’s up didn’t know how to prevent it, or set a metered connection. I am completely livid.”
