Thank you both for letting me know
"Malwarebytes Windows Firewall Control" is indeed loaded and running in Windows Services (I had previously only looked for services starting with "Windows"). I also discovered that the WFC icon was hidden in the tray - believe it or not, it was overlayed by the Kaspersky icon!
So it seems that the issues I posted above turned out to be a false alarm - sorry.
Just started using WFC. Have a question about notifications. I keep getting these notifications wanting to connect outbound:
MoUSO Core Worker Process | C:\windows\system32\mousocoreworker.exe | Block | Out | 52350 | 443 | 6 |
Device Association Framework Provider Host | C:\windows\system32\dashost.exe | Block | Out | 54428 | 3702 |
Function Discovery Resource Publication | C:\windows\system32\svchost.exe | Block | Out | 50386 | 3702 | 17 |
NT Kernel & System | System | Block | Out | 137 | 137 | 17 |
Cryptographic Services | C:\windows\system32\svchost.exe | Block | Out | 52328 | 80 | 6 |
Should I allow them to connect outbound? I used sphinx firewall in the past and it would allow such programs outbound only as "read only".
Input would be appreciated.
Windows Update, if blocked, updates might fail.
I have it disabled, I do not share files over LAN.
NetBIOS, disabled as well, since it is vulnerable.
It is used to update certificates/digital signatures for Windows, browsers, webpages.
@TairikuOkami Thanks for the tips. I will allow "out" for #'s 1 and 4 and block 2 and 3. If you don't mind, there might be a few more that I might ask your advice on.
Alexandrud et all...
It is possible to import a file with the rules (WFW or WPW from the command line (I need it during the installation phase already from the command line)...
netsh advfirewall import "C:\Firewallrules.wfw"
