Randomly, the firewall issues a window about the connection to the IP address and port that one of the running processes is using, which is already allowed access to this address and port. However, the name of the process is completely arbitrary, it can be “Windows operating system” or svchost, and even a recently uninstalled application that is physically removed from the disk and its processes are guaranteed to be completed.
