It also uses multiple hard coded IP's to connect to, so it can get around dns issues and blocking via the hosts file. It is very determined to send the information it gathers home. This is the definition of malware.

Try saying that on Reddit. Really. Anytime my post contains the phrase "Windows 10 is malware" I end up with AT LEAST -10 comment karma.

Malware, short for malicious software, is any software used to disrupt computer operations, gather sensitive information, or gain access to private computer systems. Malware is defined by its malicious intent, acting against the requirements of the computer user, and does not include software that causes unintentional harm due to some deficiency. The term badware is sometimes used, and applied to both true (malicious) malware and unintentionally harmful software.

Sure as hell is.

Why would you go to Reddit? It's shill city. They've revamped both the site and their staff to make shilling easier.
