Hi, I receive connection attempt every time I open chat window of any user in Windows Live Messenger. This happens only when the other user’s display has no picture. After some time opening the chat window, there is Comodo alert popup that you are about to receive connection on msn and the picture shows up in user’s display window if I allow the connection. I think its normal since it initiates direct connection with the user in order for the pic to be loaded on display but I can see one more connection attempt from same ip address to svchost.exe which I think I should be concerned about. With connection attempt to svchost.exe, it doesn’t happen with all the users. It happens when I chat with one user I chat with. I guess it might be that the other person’s computer is infected or the other person is trying to exploit my PC.
I have attached the firewall event pics. The connection attempts are highlighted in the pic. My question is should I be alarmed about receiving connection to svchost.exe or I can safely allow it. I thought maybe it does this because of display picture but I recently read somewhere that svchost.exe should be only for outbound connection.
P.S. Similar connection attempt happened with one more user so I guess that has to do with infected msn or computer and not hacking attempt. By the way I use dial up connection at the moment (no router).
