exe trying to act as server
Posted 30 October 2006 - 02:43 AM
I'm happy to say that I do not have an infection problem; just a question.
Every once in a while I get a zonealarm message, telling me that some executable (lately it's the Logitech-connected backweb-nnnnnnn.exe) is trying to act as server. I always deny that possibility, but now it got me curious: what exactly does that mean, that an exe is "trying to act as server"?
Thanks for the info!

Backweb gets shipped with Logitech but there is no harm in removing it. See the wealth of stuff found with Google: http://www.google.co...c...n&q=backweb
