Apparently, not suspicious enough.

It's nine o'clock; do you know what all of your processes (i.e., ps ax or equivalent) are doing?

If you're running Win10, a goodly amount of disk & net traffic has to do with surveilling you -- making logs, sending back statistics to the mother ship, etc.

Look at any forensic web site & you can see what a gold mine Win10 has built for anyone compromises your computer.

But similar processes are incorporated in iOS, Android, etc.

It's amazing how fast computers run when they're not bogged down spying on their own users!
