I observed traffic towards from a Windows 10 Machine.

The used user agent captured was “Microsoft!WiFiTask_File_Downloader” and have no information on the official website of the Microsoft.


On further analysis i found wifitask.exe generating this traffic which is a background service.


Also after analyzing wifitask.exe in "" i found the “Microsoft!WiFiTask_File_Downloader” in the strings.


Ref Link :


Can any one please help me understand,


1. Why wifitask.exe is generating traffic towards

2. Why “Microsoft!WiFiTask_File_Downloader” is captured as User Agent in logs?
