What’s coredpussvr.exe (coredpussvr.exe)? Is it safe or a virus?

Coredpussvr.exe is an executable file within the Windows operating system, developed by Microsoft, and signed by Microsoft itself. It took me quite a while to determine what this .exe does, but I think I figured it out.

DPU usually stands for "Data Processing Unit" and "SVR" usually stands for server in Microsoft .exe names, therefore I believe this process is related to Microsoft's latest DPU functionality.

While researching this .exe, I read on Techcrunch that in 2023 Microsoft acquired a company called Fungible, that specialized in DPUs, so perhaps this software is related to that acquisition. After researching carefully, I believe that this .exe's job is leveraging the capabilities of Data Processing Units (DPUs).

DPUs are specialized components designed to offload certain computational tasks from the central processing unit (CPU), thereby boosting the system's overall performance and efficiency. I believe "coredpussvr.exe" focuses on optimizing data throughput and facilitating the smooth operation of data-intensive applications.

If anyone has found any other info about this .exe, plus post on our SpyShelter forum so I can update this page with more information.

What does it mean if someone is the publisher of a PC .exe (executable or process)?

The publisher of an executable is the entity responsible for its distribution and authenticity. Most processes/executables on your PC should be signed. The signature on the executable should have been verified through a third party whose job it is to make sure the entity is who it says it is. Find an unsigned executable? You should consider scanning any completely unsigned .exe on your PC.
