Unauthorized program trying to talk to internet
Posted on 2004-10-09
ZoneAlarm says that some program with strange characters for a name is trying to access the internet. The program has size zero. ??? How can that program do anything?
I answered permanent NO, but wonder what the deal is.
The program name is ÜýTퟗÊ4C, where ퟗ is ퟗ
(That's ampersand #55255 semicolon)
This has happened from time to time (usually months apart). To date, no permanent problem that I know of. I just delete the size zero file.
So this question is to find out what the nature of the attack (if there was one) is. Maybe this is just a bug in WindowsNT?
