Nastiest Malware 2023
Did I get it backwards? Under Windows 7 as I recall, Windows Firewall handles communication in one direction, WSA in the other. Is it the opposite of what I stated?
Also my apologies for all of the confusion above due to my own lack of correct understanding on this feature :(
My issue with all of this is Webroot is trying to sell this as "Oh, the firewall is still there even if you don't see it working" Its a smart firewall. I purchased a product and paid 5 years upfront because I believed in it and the outbound granular firewall control was part of that. Webroot is blaming Microsoft yet other third party developers have products that cover granular outbound control of the Windows 10 firewall. All I want to know is when does Webroot refund users who purchased this product not only because of its unique protection capabilities but also for that granular firewall control that allowed me to decide what gets out and what does not? Also, just as important to me was what gets out permanently or just once. Big selling points for me personally. If I wanted a smart firewall where I have no input then I would have bought another product.
So Webroot monitors outbound traffic and Windows Firewall monitors inbound traffic. Am I getting this? At least that is how Windows Firewall came configured. I feel like I openned a can of worms with this question! :@
It's also discussed under "Firewall does not show the options........
You are correct about WF but there are so many rules and many I do not recognize, how do I know which are safe? Did these rules come out of the box along with popups asking me if ok?
Many thanks for your help.
