Firewall asking me to allow Cscript and WScript RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    I am running vista 64 and One care.  Recently (after 4 months running OneCare) the firewall is asking for permission to allow wsript.exe and cscript.exe access to the internet.

     

    I have run full system scans and onecare has not found anything. 

     

    SHould i give access or tis there a chance that this is malicious?

  • Did you recently install something that might be calling the Windows Scripting Host service? Both requests could indicate an infection or the request could be due to the recent installation of something on the PC that uses these services.

    If you block them, do you continually get requests? Does everything work normally if they are blocked?
