Is there any way to find out who/what is running something through java/javaw.exe, in order to determine if the outbound network connection is safe or rogue?
I use a third-party firewall (Windows Firewall Control) that interfaces with Windows 7's native firewall, and alerts me on any/all outbound connections (that don't already have a rule).
An issue, however, is javaw.exe -- because it's essentially a "gateway" program, it's not safe to allow it anytime/everytime/anyhow through the firewall.
So I'm wondering -- given no direct action or apparent cause-and-effect paired with an outbound network connection alert through javaw.exe, is there a way to determine what's doing the calling?
I'm also curious about this with svchost.exe, too.
