I apologize is this is posted in the wrong area. Please move if necessary.

I booted my iMac this morning & got a request to allow an application, netsession_mac_234a841, to accept incoming network connections (see attached photo). I denied the connection & was hoping someone here knew what it was. Doing a Google found little help. Is this a virus of some kind?

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
