Modified Firewall Rules Overruled
As we know, the Bitdefender Firewall allows both the inbound and outbound traffic of applications by default. The user can manage these default settings, reset existing rules, or even add new ones. When I block the inbound traffic of applications and launch them again, a new default rule will be created automatically to override the modified one and allow duplex traffic again. The only way to block inbound traffic in the Bitdefender Firewall is to block duplex traffic altogether. Attached down below is the screenshot of an example of the comeback of a default rule overriding the modified one. It seems that the current version of Bitdefender really has an issue with modified settings. By the way, why shouldn’t applications be denied inbound traffic by default in the Bitdefender Firewall unless otherwise specified or demanded?
