Exploit blocked during windows 10 troubleshooter


Recommended Posts

This happend when running the windows 10 audio troubleshooter.

It recommended me to open the audio enhancements, which I did.

Then the protection kicked in. I doubt this is a real threat.

I did have that on, thanks for the advice. I will consider it.

That setting is specific to penetration testing (i.e. not actual threats) so enabling won't really do anything unless the system is tested using third party testing tools/test exploits.  It is purely for testing purposes to verify that protection is working properly, however it is not needed for protecting your system from actual malware which is why it is turned off by default.

I hope that helps to clarify things and if there is anything else we might help with please let us know.
