I have here two examples of where I blocked several of certain processes in Windows 10 for reasons not relevant to this discussion. I have come to notice that eventually the processes once again were “phoning home” as a result of the executables being relocated, seemingly as a result of Windows Update based on the “major.minor.patch.build” convention in the subdirectory name.
These come to light upon the “First network activity” alerts and not “Application info changed.”
The implications for Glasswire are:
- For the free version, previous blocks are subject to defeat.
- For the paid version, the user will be subject to repeated “Ask to connect” alerts.
What say you? Thank you.
