I've got a Dell Inspiron laptop with Win7 Home installed. I used to have a subscription to Outpost Firewall Pro until the company dropped this utility and therefore I cannot get tech support from them. However even though this app no longer received updates, it's still running.
Recently Outpost reported the following activity on my laptop.
System attempts to listen a port
Local Address: local:any, TCPv6:5700
This was soon followed by the same message but the Local Address was local:any, TCPv6:8884
Not long after that I received this popup
Application rated as untrusted is attempting to modify another application's memory.
Target Process: NTOSKRNL.EXE
What exactly did Outpost Pro detect and should I have allowed it or blocked it?
