    Windows 8.1 Network Behaviour Monitoring

    Has anyone come across any detailed information about what the new 'Network Behaviour Monitoring' in Windows Defender entails? I can't seem to find any decent information on it.

    The virus scanner Defender, a standard component of the operating system since Windows 8, will include high-performance behavior monitoring in version 8.1. So far, Defender has only detected viruses using its signature database and online queries, but once the behavior monitoring is in use and detects problems, the scanner will also send an activity log to Microsoft so that it can send out updated signatures as quickly as possible.
    Found that on a blog site. The old saying "if it acts like a Duck, and quacks like a Duck, it must be a Duck" So if Defender sees something acting like a virus it will report it to MS.
