    Stop Remote Hacking Using Permissions or Other Method(s) -- if possibl

    Question

    Stop Remote Hacking Using Permissions or Other Method(s) -- if possible?
    Windows 10 Pro, v1909 but applicable to all versions of Windows

    Background
    ----------
    I am using a 3rd party ActiveX (32 bit) which is registered and resides in C:\WIndows\System32. The purpose for this ActiveX is to connect to the 3rd parties remote server. Two way communications must exist between the ActiveX and the server, as the Server needs to periodically confirm I am still connected.

    The ActiveX resides in App-1 (my App) to connect to this 3rd party server.
    Once data is received from the 3rd Party Server, App-1 sends this data XProcess to App-2 (my App) for processing. App-1 (which contains the ActiveX) resides in one folder (directory). App2 resides in another folder (directory)

    I have no knowledge what are the capabilities of the 3rd party ActiveX to snoop around. I would like to "contain" the ActiveX such that it can make communications with its remote server, but CANNOT get out the the App1 folder where it resides. Since I need XProcess communications between App-1 and App2, is it possible to "contain" the ActiveX using permissions or some other way ?
