Known Issues:

Specific concerns that UT System is reviewing includes several features that are enabled by default.  There are some privacy concerns about Windows 10 mining and collecting of  customer data, habits, and patterns for the purpose of making the operating system more social and personalized, and for the purposes of diagnostics and troubleshooting. 

The use of these new features could pose a significant risk for exfiltration of confidential university data to Microsoft (and then to undisclosed third parties). Windows 10 also enables devices to participate in  distributed updates that may violate state law governing the use of government property. The current language in the privacy agreement with Microsoft for protecting our data is under review and may need to be strengthened.
