Applying some updates to Windows on a Compaq Presario, I was alerted that the Windows Firewall blocked BlackWeb 1940576. This is the first time that I see this kind of file or service. This machine has been restored and has been on the Internet just to download Windows updates. So the chances of this being a virus are slim but still, what is Blackweb 1940576?After doing some research, based on TechSpot, BlackWeb 1940576 is a “messaging service that automatically sends you support information, tips, ideas, and special offers from HP and our partners, especially designed for HP and Compaq desktop computer owners”
Really?, a Compaq connection manger named BlackWeb? Why would Compaq name a connection manager that way. If it is, I think Compaq needs some help naming their files. One important thing to now is that malware camouflage itself as BlackWeb 1940576.
