popups were three apps are involved !?


how do I have to understand a popup, that says:

“App A is trying to connect to the internet. Want to allow that ?”
“App B (!) has used OLE to force App C (!) to connect to…”
“App B (or C ?) is trying to conceal (…) with A”

I dont remenber the exact words. It was not always OLE, sometimes it was other means. But always in a sense of B is manipulating C, but A was the application to allow.

An example: I have running a filesharing tool, activ (of cos). Then, I check my mails and hit an link that will open up Internet Explorer. The FW then blocks my filesharig tool (= App A).




Maybe the following 2 threads will help you understand what is going on with the interaction of applications…
