Warning "New server application" What does it mean

Occasionally my security package (FSecure) pops up a warning on certain websites.
"New server application.... Internet shield noticed application trying to act as internet server" Recommend "DENY"
What does this mean ? What's trying to happen ?
If I click "Deny" the page appears to load normally anyway.

I believe it is a known Microsoft security flaw, in that, it is possible that your PC could (but probably isn't) be victim of a breach of your security.

I hope that makes sense.

Thanks Technotiger. Your saying it's nothing to worry about... probably :)

Correct.
