Connections should be inspected to restrict traffic to only authorized communications (for example by restricting the IP addresses or ports or enabling content blocking). This query shows all desktop firewall rules that allow outbound traffic and allows you to determine which rules are excessive and need to be disabled or adjusted to disallow unauthorized traffic.
