    66Anyway, this ticket is about sending information about the site, WordPress (the software) and the hosting environment (the server) when checking for updates. As with everything else in WordPress, site owners can opt out of this service by using a plugin. I personally think this is a very bad idea as that will make their sites vulnerable to attacks. But people are free to make their own decisions.
