My Defense+ just logged an intrusion apparently by VLC when trying to play a file.

The flag is: DN/RPC Client Access

And the target is, RPC Control/DNS Resolver.

Anything to be worried about?! Not sure why it’s happening it said VLC was a safe application.

Maybe it was the file not VLC. What filetype and extension did you attempt to play?

Was an .avi file

Got my defense+ set on paranoid though.

Paranoid mode trumps safe file. The alert means VLC wants to connect to the internet.

So essentially it’s all good right?

Didn’t realise VLC even connected to the internet haha!
