Microsoft baked in a nifty and stealthy feature on Windows 10 that works like torrents delivering updates from one PC to the other. As it works out, one PC can download updates for either the system or for a particular app. Other PCs connected to the same network will also get those updates, not from the internet but shared from the PC that first got those updates.
That feature obviously has the advantage of saving you on data consumption if you are on a metered internet connection. However, the downside to it is that it raises security concerns if the PCs in question are not connected to a private network. Say, computers connected to a public Wi-Fi at the library, or at the airport.
