    I have denied permission, in my firewall, to an application called AOM-MFC PROGRAM. I don't know what it is though I think it is something nasty. I looked at the logs in my firewall and when selecting this program it says the following

    Denial of service "code red detected"

    A code red from outside is detected, it is a very dangerous virus that will deface your web pages, perform a denial of service attack, and even crash your system.

    What I am not sure about now is what I need to do. If I have denied permission to this application does that mean there is no problem or should I be trying to remove this from my computer. I have performed a virus scan since this problem occured and no infection was found.

    Please can someone help.

    MFC could be "microsoft foundation class"
    AOM could be"add on module"

    or "age of mythology"
    dont think its malicious

    just deny access and if things are the same then its not needed to access the net.

    I was able to track down this:

    CompanyName : Adobe Systems, Incorporated
    FileDescription : AOM MFC Application
    InternalName : AOM
    OriginalFilename : AOM.EXE

    As Steve said, it is probably not evil. If you can, find the application, right click, and check it's properties. You could look in your Task Manager and see if AOM.EXE is running. It's a thought.

    Is this the error you got?

    Do you want to allow AOM MFC Application to Access the Internet?
    Technical information IP:
    Application: AOM.EXE
    Version 2,7,1,24

    Everything I have seen points to either Adobe PhotoShop of MS Age of Empires. Have either of them installed?
