Endpoint Protection Firewall - svchost contacting MS's servers
Apologies if this is in the wrong place.
I just upgraded Oracle's VirtualBox and its user extensions.
Since, I've been getting pop-ups from Symantec telling me that it is blocking svchost.exe. Looking at the logs, it appears to be blocking contact to a couple of Microsoft servers (when I look up the IPs that are listed in the logs).
No "risks" have been found, scanning the computer. Should I just disable the firewall for a bit to let it connect, and then turn it back on? I don't understand what changed after updating the Oracle software. Did malware piggy-back a ride?
Thanks for your time. Let me know what information I can provide, if any, to make helping me easier.
