    Default ZA leaking? Save.exe got access rights automatically...

    I use free ZA 6.1.737

    I installed new free version of BSplayer (www.bsplayer.com) with the adware WhenU Save. I knew exactly what I was installing, I am not a newbie to IT security.

    After WhenU Save installed itself, I was surprised it "didn't try" to get out onto the internet so I cheched the ZA program settings. Two new program instances "Save.exe" and "VVSN.exe" had access to the internet ALLOWED. I never granted it -- no, I am not a ******, I NEVER clicked ANY message from firewall to grant access.

    I thougt this is so alarming, that it propted me to register to these forums. I had seen on google that some malvare programs actually "click" the ZA nagging request themselves, to get them out on the net. It's not my job to find out what happened, but I'd like to receive a confirmation that this actually happened. Could anyone try?

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)
    Software Version:6.0

    SH!T, forget it, I had the ZA program control set to learning mode. That was probably it.

    Yup. In learning mode, ZA automatically places a tick beside programs that need to access or act as a server.

    I also have this problem occasionally.
    I am not in learning mode.
    I think that this problem should be investigated.
