CIS Firewall prompted me to allow or block a strangely named executable

CIS prompted me to allow or deny:
from connecting to the internet.

I blocked it and was unable to find it on my computer’s temp file.
Perhaps it’s generated by another file? A google search for the path
and for just the file name turned up nothing.

I’d like to find out what the file is. Any ideas?


I’m not sure what it is, but maybe scan it here

Have you looked at the file’s properties? Often there’s a company name or a description in there. It’d also be good to know what process ran that program (aka, the “parent process”). You can use a nice utility from SysInternals (now part of Microsoft) named “ProcessExplorer” to find that out.
Also the date created and date modified fields might jog your memory to what it’s related to.

I think installers make temporary executables like this and maybe some VPN clients too.
