I don’t know when this was changed, but it seems like this specific Packet rule was disabled by itself? Is it a new default in the new versions? Any ideas why it would happen?

@Rimanah, yes, this rule is disabled in the latest anti-virus version.

Let me guess, high amount of people having problems with apps like TeamViewer lately thanks to Corona and demands on HomeOffice? Isn’t it a possible security hazard? And since what version is this a thing? The second big update to 2021 or 2021 itself? I could have had it for months disabled because of it, and that worries me.

@Rimanah, i think you are right and this is caused by the increase in the need for remote work.

This rule does not affect TeamViewer in any way, only Remote Desktop.
It looks like this change happened in 2021MR2.
Windows Remote Desktop is turned off by default, so I don't think this is a security threat.
