I (accidently) launched Internet Explorer today and this triggered the following alert in Windows Defender (copy from the windows event log
C:\Program Files\internet explorer\iexplore.exe was blocked by controlled folder access to change the path %desktopdirectory%\瘁毓翹. Detection Time: 2018-07-05T19:07:47.684Z Path: %desktopdirectory%\瘁毓翹 Process Name: C:\Program Files\internet explorer\iexplore.exe Signature Version: 1.271.495.0 Module Version: 1.1.15000.2 Product Version: 4.18.1806.18062
While other people seem to have the same problem, I found no explanation what
iexplore.exe is trying to do there. Any ideas? Should I be worried about malware?
And: I won't whitelist
iexplore.exe because I don't use it and I find that path suspicious.
