Thanks for your work and the hint, Rocky. I checked it. There is a strange effect of that search machine of Hummingbird's: It returns 50 hits for msfirewall, but NOT ONE of these linked pages contains "msfirewall", only "firewall" !!
Was afraid that was going to be the case! It was a long shot! With Snart.m and Kapersky mentioned, I'm thinking I was likely closer with the Russian news articles! }:^)
