I use Networx - to manage and monitor my machines network connection. It shows real download speeds and active network connections.
So, a few times all of a sudden I got these downloads and I was not downloading anything, or using the browser and even my Windows Updates are disabled.
So Networks shows it as a connection through BITS.
TCP PC-MACHINE-NAME: 1650
ESTABLISHED 88.0 KB/s
But I had no way to see what BITS was downloading. So, I went online and found some applications built on top of BITS.
One of these applications called BITS Download Manager shows me what BITS is actually downloading.
I am wondering about the Security Implications of BITS being used and abused by legitimately and wrongful ways?
Also, is there a way we can disable or limit access to it in some fashion, to some degree - as a Rememdy?
