Why does mousocoreworker.exe access the network?
While we were monitoring mousocoreworker.exe with our Glasswire Network Security Monitoring software on our own PCs based in Austin, Texas USA, we found this app connects to settingsfd-geo.trafficmanager.net which is a known host operated by Microsoft. We have found many parts of Windows Update connect to trafficmanager.net, and this behavior should be normal. These servers are used to “orchestrate” Windows updates, so you should not block them if you want to receive updates and keep your PC safe, stable, and secure.
