Firewall notifications: incomplete information

I am getting notificacions of "brutefoce attack blocked", but the information is always incomplete since the "protocol" is missing:

"Bruteforce attack blocked

Feature: Online Threat Prevention

Multiple failed login attempts were made by using the protocol. We blocked the connection to stop the attacker from gaining access to your credentials and compromise your privacy."

How can I know the protocol used for the attack? Is there any log file with a more detailed description of the attack? Where is the location of the firewall log files?

I am using Bitdefender Total Security Build on Windows 10 Pro 21H2 (19044.1766)
