Windows 10 telemetry data being shared with third-parties?

One of the privacy concerns about Windows 10 is about how much data the operating system collects and sends back to Microsoft. The software giant claims the data is used to make its operating system better, as the anonymous telemetry data enables it to spot software problems and fix security and reliability issues.

Now word is going around that Microsoft inked a deal with security company Fireye to share telemetry data. The article also mentions security teams can access the telemetry data via a subscription-based model.
So says Australian website ARN, which reports that Microsoft and FireEye's partnership, which will see the security firm's iSIGHT Intelligence tools baked into Windows Defender, will also see FireEye "gain access to telemetry from every device running Windows 10."


However, details of the type of data that will be shared remain vague, and it's unclear whether FireEye will only be getting access to data from Windows Defender or whether it'll be given all of the system data that Microsoft collects.
