Today I was meeting with some friends on Zoom app when my internet connection gone.
The internet icon on Windows notification area started to alternate between connected and disconnected, but without no signal of internet through Google Chrome or any other app.
5 seconds after disconnection, Glasswire asked permission for the “first network activity” from an mysterious app called 2166136261 (this number is part of Fowler–Noll–Vo hash function). I decided to block.
Then I restarted my computer, tried a TP Link USB wifi dongle, restarted my Mikrotik, my ISP modem, no success at all. I started to feel afraid of some ransomware.
So I opened Glasswire to monitor any web acitivity trying to pass through my connection or app changes and staring that 2166136261 blocked I started to ask me what about to unblock that. And, WOW. Connection was back!
So I want to know WTF is that 2166136261. Some guess?
ADD: Zoom and Rainmeter apps updated after connection restore.
