The list of files to add to the antivirus and firewall exceptions:

• AccountCreatorRunner.exe

## Cloud Backup network resources

The following network resources should be added to the antivirus and firewall exceptions.

Open outgoing traffic for ports 80 and 443 for the following URL addresses:

• cm.sosonlinebackup.com
