My apologies if this is FAQ, but I could not find it anywhere. I was looking into restricting outbound http requests to my web browser application when I discovered that any application could fetch files from other machines over http even though my outgoing default rule is to block. When I use tcpview, this seems to be because http requests are proxied through nod32 via localhost. https is of course not proxied and is properly blocked. This seems like a very bad side effect if you really want to control what leaves your machine and you are depending on firewall rules to work. Are there any known workarounds for this? I'm guessing nod32 v2.7 or something else entirely might be the answer. Thanks.
