Hi forum. Today I realized that Steam.exe adds two inbound firewall rules opening all ports from all sources on TCP and UDP for each game I install or update, no matter if the game has any inbound networking features. Even if I disable the rules, the next time I update a game, the rules for that game are reenabled. Is there a known way for me to prevent this behavior?
